Top 10! Baseball Climbs in National Polls

    March 31, 2014

    HOUSTON - National recognition continues for Houston Baseball as the Cougars climb to No. 10 in the nation this week by both Baseball America and Perfect Game, while ranking among the nation's Top 20 in all five polls.

    The No. 10 ranking by Baseball America is the highest for the Cougars in that specific poll since the 2002 season, while the 2006 team was the last team to crack the nation's Top 10 in any poll.
