Oklahoma is represented three times in the top 10 of the NAIA preseason baseball poll.

OCU leads the way in the No. 4 spot, following a trip to the College World Series in 2012.  Last year’s national runner-up, Rogers State, is not far behind, ranked fifth.  And Oklahoma Baptist rounds out the top 10 in the No. 10 spot.

Spring is quite a while away, but the diamond thoughts are already out there.
