With Opening Day under three weeks away, two national publications have the Commodores ranked high entering the 2014 season. Baseball America tabbed the Dores 10th overall and Perfect Game has VU at No. 11 in their respective preseason polls.

The Baseball America poll features eight SEC teams with South Carolina (No. 7), Mississippi State (No. 8), LSU (No. 9), Alabama (No. 21), Florida (No. 23), Texas A&M (No. 24) and Arkansas (No. 25) joining Vandy in the poll. The SEC's eight teams lead the way among conferences with the ACC placing six squads in the poll, including top-ranked Virginia.

Virginia also tops the Perfect Game poll with seven teams from the SEC leading all conferences.

Vanderbilt opened preseason practice last Friday in freezing temperatures and return to the field this week in preparation for the season lid lifter at Long Beach State on February 14. Hawkins Field is set to host its first game of 2014 when Lipscomb visits on February 19. The Dores' annual baseball banquet is set for February 8.
