Florida State baseball is exactly one month from opening day. The Seminoles will open up the season on February 18th in Dick Howser Stadium against James Madison University. D1baseball released their preseason rankings today, with the Seminoles ranked #11.

This is FSU’s highest preseason ranking by D1baseball under Mike Martin Jr. It is the Seminoles’ best preseason ranking since they were #5 to begin the season in 2018. The ‘Noles will play 21 of their 56 games against teams from D1’s preseason rankings. 16 of those 21 games will be at Dick Howser Stadium.

The Seminoles finished the 2021 season 31-24 and 20-16 in the ACC. FSU’s season finished in the Oxford Regional. Florida State brought in a top-10 recruiting class this offseason, including a handful of impact bats from the transfer portal, to bolster the roster for the 2022 season.
