March 2, 2015
Dodger Stadium

Dodger Stadium will host the 2015 Dodgertown Classic, featuring Texas Christian, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Southern California

Weather, again, played a huge factor as college baseball’s Week 3 commenced across the nation. The schedules were dotted by cancellations, reschedules and more cancellations and postponements.

Despite having their tournament moved to Myrtle Beach, due to inclement weather forecasts and playing field conditions, Virginia swept through the tourney pairings undefeated to claim a third consecutive week atop the weekly rankings. The Cavaliers, Texas A&M, Mississippi State, Southern California and Yale are the only remaining undefeated teams in Division-1. (Yale’s season begins Wednesday vs, Division-2 New Haven)

The nation’s top six teams, Virginia, Florida, Texas Christian, UCLA, Vanderbilt and Louisiana State, completed undefeated weeks and occupy the same rankings this week.

Texas Tech, Texas A&M and Mississippi State move into the top ten, Oregon advanced five spots to #14 and Southern California ascended seven spots, from #23 to #16, Meanwhile, Alabama, following a home series loss to Louisiana-Lafayette, dropped out of the rankings and was replaced by San Diego State.

Highlighting this week’s schedule is the return of the Dodgertown Classic in Los Angeles. The tourney, which began in 2010, returns after a one-year hiatus and will be played at Dodger Stadium for the first time since 2012. Jackie Robinson Stadium hosted the event in 2013.
