Top D1 Baseball Schools

TeamFacts 2020 Top D1 Baseball Schools

Through the TeamFacts college baseball analytics platform, we identified the top D1 baseball schools. By taking a look at team performance and conference strength over the past three years, this ranking provides an accurate read out of the top tier baseball programs at the Division I level. It’s worth noting that the 2020 season was not factored into this ranking, being that it was largely incomplete due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To no surprise this list is headlined by high profile schools within very recognizable conferences. These programs consist of the top recruited players in the country coming out of high school. Additionally, some of these programs have already drafted players straight out of high school, but they chose to pursue college instead. Some schools treat baseball as a business, so performing poorly could have greater consequences than at a lower-tier Division I program.

TeamFacts provides a variety of college baseball program rankings. Another popular one is the TeamFacts best D1 baseball schools. While it might sound similar to the current ranking, it ranks programs that provide the best overall experience for their student-athletes. In addition to team performance and conference strength, that ranking also factors in player retention, redshirt, and incoming transfer data.

In addition to rankings, TeamFacts also provides prospective college baseball players with tools to assist with the college baseball search and recruiting process. One of the tools is essentially a database that contains information for every NCAA baseball program. Contained in the database are several metrics that identify the key components of a baseball program. Some of these metrics include players graduating by year/position, roster size, player retention, incoming transfer trends, and many more. With this data, players can make informed decisions and increase exposure to college coaches. If you want to learn more about this tool, visit our database tool information page.
