The Diamond Dogs were ranked No. 4 by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Division I poll on Monday.

The ranking is fifth Top 10 ranking for John Cohen’s club this season having been picked No. 2 by Collegiate Baseball, No. 4 by USA Today/ Coaches, No. 6 by Perfect Game and No. 8 by Baseball America.

Junior closer Jonathan Holder also picked up a preseason award on Monday being selected a third team All-American by Baseball America. It is the fourth preseason All-American honor for Holder.

Outfielder Demarcus Henderson and second baseman Brett Pirtle were picked the 38th and 41st best seniors by Baseball America while pitcher Brandon Woodruff is considered the 33rd best junior. Pitcher Dakota Hudson was also selected the 35th best freshman.

The MSU ticket office also announced it had set a school record with 5,644 season ticket purchases, surpassing the 2010 record by 12.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
