Just one day after sophomore third baseman Josh Jung was named to the preseason All-American First Team by Perfect Game/Rawlings, the Texas Tech baseball team has been ranked no. 5 by the same publication in their preseason rankings.

This is the second time that the Red Raider baseball team has been ranked as one of the top teams in the preseason. They were ranked no. 4 by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper back in December.

The top 5 teams ranked by Perfect Game Rawlings were:

  1. LSU
  2. Oregon State
  3. Vanderbilt
  4. UCLA
  5. Texas Tech

The Red Raiders will begin the season in Lubbock with Opening Day slated for Friday, Feb. 15th, against Oregon at 2 p.m. Texas Tech will host the Ducks for a four-game set through Feb. 18th, 2019.
