This week’s map is a proportional symbol map displaying current NCAA Div. I Collegiate Baseball Rankings. Tennessee, Oregon State, Virginia Tech, Stanford and Texas Tech lead the way. Seventeen of the twenty-five teams are located in the Deep South. Southeastern dominance along with PAC-12 teams correlate with traditional baseball hotbeds. This pattern is very similar to the baseball player origins map. Leaving little doubt, as to the role climate plays in college baseball success.
