Rankings

National champion Oregon State finished No. 1 in the final D1Baseball Top 25 rankings of 2018. The Beavers were No. 2 in the preseason, No. 1 at the end of the regular season, and No. 1 after running through the losers’ bracket in Omaha to win their third College World Series.

CWS runner-up Arkansas finished No. 2, up two spots from the end of the regular season. Preseason No. 1 Florida, which spent most of the season atop the rankings, finished at No. 3 following a trip to the national semifinals. The other semifinalist, Mississippi State, made the biggest jump in the final rankings, vaulting from unranked at the end of the regular season to No. 4 in the final Top 25.

Fellow CWS participant Washington jumped from outside the Top 25 to No. 8, as all eight CWS teams finished in the top eight of the rankings. The other new teams in the rankings are super regional participants Cal State Fullerton (No. 16) and Vanderbilt (No. 18). All of the other teams in the final Top 25 were either regional hosts or regional finalists.

D1Baseball editors Aaron Fitt and Kendall Rogers determine the Top 25 rankings. Records are through games of June 28.
