For the first time since the 2011 season, the University of Hawaii baseball team has cracked the national rankings. The Rainbow Warriors are No. 30 in the latest survey put out by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, the oldest college baseball poll in the country.
Hawaii is currently 11-3 on the season (3-1 in the Big West Conference), having taken three of four games from conference rival Long Beach State this past weekend. The ’Bows travel to California this week for a four-game set against another Big West foe, UC Irvine (10-7, 4-0). Friday’s game will air on ESPN Honolulu starting at 11:30 a.m., and Saturday’s doubleheader (8:30 a.m.) and Sunday’s series finale (9:30 a.m.) will be broadcast on CBS 1500. Josh Pacheco will be calling the action live from Cicerone Field at Anteater Ballpark.
