Pirates tabbed Pre-Season #4 in America by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper

With the turn of the calendar into the New Year, Collegiate Baseball Newspaper became the first national publication to release its pre-season JUCO Baseball Poll, and the Chattahoochee Valley Pirates check in as the 4th ranked team in the country.

After a third place finish in the JUCO World Series, the Pirates return the bulk of one of the top pitching staffs in the country, with a core of position players returning in catcher JT Thomas and outfielders Will Campbell and Nolan Greckel.

With the first day of practice only 10 days away, the Pirates have only 18 days of preparation before they head to Panama City Beach for The First Pitch Classic on the campus of Gulf Coast State College on Friday, January 29th.
