The State of ACC Baseball: Pre-May

The ACC Baseball season is about one month away from entering postseason. 26 days, to be exact. So where is ACC Baseball right now? What is the state of the league right now, when alot of people just start paying attention? Let’s take a look:

Probable Champion: There isn’t one. With Virginia being ranked the best in the land, Florida State hotter then anybody, and Georgia Tech having a better record then all ACC teams, it’s hard to say who is going to win the championship. And with the league being about 8 teams deep, there’s no team who would surprise me if they were the champion.

ACC Baseball Chances Of Having a CWS Champion? Very probable. Heck, if you consider home field advantage a big factor in regional and super regional play, the ACC will have about a 40% chance of winning a national championship. And with Miami always being a threat to go to Omaha, I think it might be safe to put money on an ACC team winning a championship. If the season ended today, the ACC would have three teams hosting super regionals. Wow.
