Ball State’s baseball team is ranked 26th in the nation in this week’s Collegiate Baseball Poll presented by Big League Chew bubble gum.

"It is a great honor for our program to be recognized nationally," Ball State head baseball coach Rich Maloney said.  "Despite our rich tradition it has been a while since we have got this kind of recognition.  This is great for our seniors and all the players in the program."

The Cardinals are 38-16 overall and 22-4 in the Mid-American Conference plus have secured the No. 1 seed in the MAC Tournament that starts Wednesday. 

Under the direction of head coach Maloney, Ball State won the MAC Regular-Season Championship and the MAC West Division, and will face Western Michigan in its first game of the MAC Tournament Wednesday at 4:30 p.m.  The tourney will be held at All Pro Freight Stadium in Avon, Ohio.
