Even though it’s the offseason, West Virginia baseball is continuing its streak of setting program records. This time, it’s the next batch of recruits that’s getting the recognition.
The Mountaineers’ 2019 signing class has been ranked as the No. 21 class nationally by Perfect Game, the highest such ranking in program history. This is also the first instance of a Mountaineer class even cracking the top 25.
The class was originally ranked by Perfect Game as No. 38 nationally, but were re-ranked based on players that decided to either go pro or attend college. The Mountaineers signed two players that were selected in the MLB Draft (lefty Daniel Batcher and catcher/infielder Matt McCormick), but both have decided to attend WVU.
