FULLERTON, Calif. – The Titans have been ranked No. 25 in D1Baseball's 2019 top-25 poll, the publication announced Monday. Fullerton has now been placed in two preseason polls to begin the season, as they were ranked No. 18 by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
The Titans enter the new season after hosting its 10th Super Regional in the history of the program and its 14th Super Regional appearance overall in 2018. Fullerton has four teams ranked in the top-25 on its schedule for the 2019 season including top ranked Vanderbilt.
Fullerton is the fourth-highest ranked team on the West Coast behind No. 5 UCLA, No. 8 Oregon State and No. 12 Stanford. The Titans host Stanford in their first home series of the season at Goodwin Field.
For the Titans, it'll be a good mix of returners and newcomers that should make up a team worthy of its top-25 preseason ranking. Fullerton welcomes back seven of the nine starting field players from a season ago including double-play duo Hank LoForte and Sahid Valenzuela.
Fans will get their first opportunity to see the 2019 Titans on Jan. 26 at Goodwin Field, as Fullerton will hold its annual Alumni Game at 1 p.m. PT.
