The Point Park baseball team is ranked 14th in the Perfect Game College Baseball NAIA Top 25 preseason poll released Thursday.

The Pioneers are fueled by a pitching staff that returns nearly intact from last season when it ranked No. 2 in the NAIA with a 2.85 team earned-run average.

The Pioneers ended last year No. 13 in the Perfect Game poll.

This is the second time Point Park received a national ranking in an NAIA poll for the upcoming 2019 campaign. The Pioneers, who finished the 2018 season 47-9 overall, are slotted 16th in the NAIA Baseball Coaches Preseason Top 25 Poll released in November.

Point Park opens its season Feb. 23 at the RussMatt Central Florida Invitational in Winter Haven, Fla.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
