Baseball Ranked Fifth In New England

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College baseball team, off to the best-ever start in the history of the program, is ranked fifth in New England in the latest poll released on Monday. The poll is conducted by the New England College Baseball Coaches.

Bowdoin will take a 14-4 mark into action against in-state rival Southern Maine on Wednesday afternoon. The Polar Bears will then enter a key stretch of games that include regional rivals Endicott, Amherst, UMass-Boston, and a key three-game set at home against Tufts on April 16-17.

Fans who cannot attend Wednesday's Southern Maine game at Bowdoin can follow the game live on the web at the Bowdoin Athletics website:
