Using baseball hierarchy; we play Double A football, Triple A basketball, and Major League Baseball.

Good gawd...Rocco should've had to explain that.

We're bringing the grandson to the burg for 4 days next week. We will prowl the halls of the Kaplan making contact with those involved. Planning on introducing the lefty to TJ, and others, eating at the KAT, the old Colonial, and hooking up with friends. If I learn anything, I'll report back.

Baseball is a lower level than MLB. Probably more like high A/AA ball in the CAA. SEC baseball is more like AAA ball. Some of those schools have support as good as a couple of MLB teams.

He wasn't talking about our baseball compared to actual MLB. The comparison was about how we compare against other schools and what or strongest sport is. That being said, I agree that we are not at the top tier of baseball. The SEC and a few other majors are at another level. Since baseball plays more games than football or basketball we have a chance to snag one more often. With limited scholarships it also helps narrow the gap between the top tier, but still a gap (see facilities and other support that is unrivaled at some of the power schools).

. In talking with Coach Brian today I learned that baseball is fully funded scholarship wise. We are establishing ourselves as a top 30 program. That's all good.
