SAU baseball hopes to continue its tradition of success in 2014 and three-peat as GAC Champions. Above, the team celebrates the 2013 GAC Championship victory.

The Southern Arkansas baseball team will enter the 2014 season as the 13th-ranked team in Division II according to the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper preseason poll.

Last year, the Muleriders were nationally-ranked throughout the season by Collegiate Baseball and finished the 2013 campaign with a record of 42-17 en route to repeating as Great American Conference regular season and tournament champions while also making their sixth-consecutive regional tournament appearance.

In 2014, the Muleriders return four starters from their lineup and five pitchers who made at least five appearances a year ago. All four of the returning position players hit at least .293 with two hitting over .300 and the five returning experienced pitchers combined to go 13-2 with a 3.49 ERA.
