Auburn baseball projected for strong season

AUBURN – Auburn is ranked No. 23 in the 2011 USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 baseball coaches’ preseason poll, which isn't too far off where the football team was ranked in the preseason.

Auburn begins spring practice on Friday (Jan. 28).

The Tigers open the season on Friday, Feb. 18, with Arkansas State (Home, 6p.m.)
