    Duke is #23, and there are six teams from the ACC ranked in the top 25. State, FSU and Notre Dame are 10, 11 and 13. GT is 20 and Miami 25.

    I see Duke is ranked #23 in the D1Baseball Pre-Season Poll:

    I know that recruiting has changed a lot and that kids are committing younger and younger but I didn't realize quite how young it was. My wife was talking to some other parents at one of my kids games recently and they mentioned that a local kid (I live in NYC) in his early teens they knew from a private school here had committed to play baseball at Duke. I was skeptical did some googling and saw that this was indeed true, and that he is currently a freshman in high school - Duke currently has three commitments from freshmen according to this site (including one named Zion).

    So not only do the baseball coaches have to worry about whether their recruits will be drafted and not even show up, but they are out recruiting kids who are not even in high school yet. Tough job.

    Anyone know the status of Henry Williams, our promising pitcher that was injured last year?

    His GoDuke bio says he came back and pitched in relief the last game of the 2021 season (6/6)..

    No specific information on his health status but Williams is mentioned in Jimís preview article.

    First man up scores a lead off homer for VMI. Bleah.

    Johnson is getting hit hard. 3-1 VMI after 3.

    Johnson goes 4 1/3 giving up 8 hits and 5 runs - very poor outing for our ace. Lefty Josh Allen in and immediately gives up a rbi double. 5-1 VMI.

    Watching DWBB against UVA was more fun.






    (At least Duke baseball has a whole season in front of them.)

    Yep, 7-1 now. Really pathetic home opener.

    7th inning stretch time, the mighty VMI Cadets are as unstoppable as WF men's basketball in the last 10 minutes and Virginia women's basketball for the entire game, they lead 10-3.

    Final 10-5 VMI. Ugly from the first batter onward. I was surprised Johnson was the Friday starter as good as he was last year for us. I thought Fox would start there.

    Don't forget the mighty Jacksonville lacrosse team. It's not been a pretty week in Durham.
