Devil’s Country – ASU Sports Report

What’s a Pre-season Rank Worth?

I have got to be honest, its hard to follow all the turnover that goes on in college baseball.  But, with that said I still try to follow the Devils baseball team. (and with good reason this year)  They enter into this season ranked #1 in the nation in one poll. 

I just love watching the regionals, super regionals, and the college world series.  That is some of the best baseball to watch.   I love the drama in Omaha.

Lets just hope that this year Brett Wallace is ready to carry the torch for the Devils through the playoffs and not just the regular season.   



  1. I agree. The #1 ranking is exciting, but you don’t need to look very far to see that it doesn’t mean a whole lot in June. Vandy (who we just smoked) was #1 most of last year – they didn’t even make Super Regionals.

    I currently live in Omaha and the CWS is a great atmosphere. I try to see a couple of games every year, but having ASU in town is soooo much better! Getting to, and succeeding at, the CWS takes a team effort – and Brett Wallace is certainly a key part of that. He was absolutely dejected over his performance last year. They were a hot team going into the CWS last year, but the offense went cold in Omaha. I hope this year’s team has the focus and resolve to achieve their potential.

    Let’s go Devils! Looking forward to June and the CWS!

  2. Hey, I’m interning with an MLB club and we’re putting together a collarative evaluation on D1 players defense. We’re working with passionate and savvy fans like yourself, and the results will be available to those who participate. We have a website that makes it easy to do, and I was wondering if you go to enough games in person to participate. If that’s something you’d be interested in, email me at eriknmanningATgmailDOTcom.
