NAIA Baseball Ranking With Regionals Projections

TTFB presents a new NAIA Baseball Rankings, 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 View our NAIA Baseball main page here for updated NAIA baseball rankings, draft stock, and analysis throughout the season.

Special Edition – REGIONAL WATCH

The image below is the current landscape for regional play as we see it. Green color are teams that have locked their automatic bids in place. Yellow team names are PROJECTED based on standings to win. They have to win that spot to claim their automatic bid. Not every conference will end up this way, there will be upsets.

Below the grid are the AT LARGE and Bubble Watch teams. Can there be teams that aren’t on this list get in? Sure, there’s still time to play your way in, but time is running out. Any AT LARGE team isn’t locked. Perhaps, St. Thomas, Lyon, and ACU/Westmont may be a guarantee, but anything can happen with these conference tournaments. Their seasons so far has pretty much locked them. Knowing that, there’s about 10 up for air AT LARGE picks currently.

And below this chart is our weekly rankings that play a part in projecting the below results with the same data (no pretty colors though). Note: JSI reflects similar to BO Chip Ranking, but differs on the point structure to better reflect how the NCAA ranks, Strength of Schedule and Quality of Wins/Losses. We THANK YOU for following us this year. We will post updates throughout tournaments.
