Baseball America Tabs Georgia Tech For NCAA Field, UGA On Outside Looking In

The college baseball season opens this weekend as much of the South is still thawing out from a "historical" ice storm.

Both Georgia and Georgia Tech are in rebuilding modes entering the season. The Yellow Jackets played in a Regional Final last season but lost their top bats and bring back a young pitching staff. Meanwhile in Athens, the Bulldogs start anew with new coach Scott Stricklin takes over for the fired David Perno. Stricklin was an assistant at Georgia Tech from 2002-2004 and gained the reputation as a monster recruiter. He came from Kent State where as Head Coach he took the Golden Flashes to the CWS in 2012.

Baseball America released a preseason NCAA field of 64 which included the Jackets as one of the last teams in but left out the Bulldogs.

Georgia Tech opens the season with a home tournament against Radford, Old Dominion, and VCU. Georgia starts at home against Georgia Southern in a double-header Saturday with new energy surrounding the program.
