TCU has the look of a team that is back with a purpose in 2019.


Five Quick Hits: Potential Breakout Teams


A program’s fortunes can turn a 180 from one season to the next due to attitude and effort level from the players involved. Of course, there are an endless other number of reasons why a team can make a quantum leap forward from one year to the next, such as how injuries play a part or the adjustment time for a new coaching staff to go from year one to year two or just the maturation of a great recruiting class to slow the game down and make the adjustments to play better baseball at this level.

With that as a backdrop, I’ve culled out five teams who I think are going into 2018 with renewed vigor and should make a drastic improvement from last season.

Here are my five teams that could go from ordinary to extraordinary in 2018…

2018 Record: 31-27, 14-16 ACC
Finish: For the first time since 1983-1984 the Jackets missed the NCAAs for a second straight season.
Why They’ll Be Extraordinary:
Everybody is back. Well, almost everybody that is. The Jackets will miss All-American catcher Joey Bart, but head coach Danny Hall with welcome the return of seven starters and every pitcher of note, including expected top-round draftees in LHP Connor Thomas and RHP Xzavion Curry. Tech will be one of the most experienced teams in the country, which will bode well in June.
