NAIA Baseball Ranking #4; Tennessee Wesleyan & Faulkner Lead


Tennessee Wesleyan

TTFB presents a new ranking, one centered on a strength index of how a team has competed thus far to a point in a season. In a nutshell, a higher ranking team has fared well against current strong opponents while lower ranked (and some high ranked) teams lose points for “bad” losses.

You’ll notice a tie isn’t in any records below. We hate ties and we award no points for such a result. It’s basically a game that shouldn’t have ever been played and according to our records, it never was played. This isn’t soccer.

If you see an error, record is wrong, etc – email us at Throughthefencebaseball@gmail.com. View our NAIA Baseball main page here for updated rankings, draft stock, and analysis throughout the season. We know this looks much better on a desktop right now and not the phone. We’re working on that. In the meantime, hit the top right button on your phones browser (looks like 4 lines) and it’ll be pretty. 

THIS WILL BE UPDATED EVERY DAY THROUGH THE SEASON NOW ON THE NAIA BASEBALL PAGE. ONLY THE TOP 25 WILL BE POSTED DAILY, THE FULL LINEUP POSTED IN ARTICLE FORMAT EVERY WEEK.
