In the “large school” division, the Alabama State Hornets basically dominated the 2015 National HBCU Baseball poll by Black College Nines from start to finish.

The Hornets finished the regular season with a winning record, going 30-19 this season out beating the Norfolk State Spartans (rank No. 2) for the duration of polling.

The SWAC tournament remains on the schedule for the Hornets with a possible NCAA Division I post-season bid in the offering.

According to Black College Nines, the independent blog promoting HBCU baseball and its legacy “is dedicated to preserving the tradition of baseball at historically black colleges and universities and is in its first year of selecting national champions.”



  1. How is Alabama St. named the top HBCU when the Hornets didnt even win the SWAC tournament and Arkansas at Pine Bluff won its second straight Western Conference title. I’m not a fan of UAPB or Alabama St., but give cedit to where credit is due. Coach James has taken his program to another level there in Pine Bluff, to cap off the talks of renovating the Torii Hunter baseball complex, to be one of the top complex in the country. UAPB defeated # 2 Mississippi St., #23 Missouri, Louisiana Tech, and University of Kansas. But the program gets no respect from our own editors, how can we plead for respect when the HBCU buzz or black college nine dont even care to mention the accomplishments of beating schools with close to a million dollars budget. #SHOWUAPBSOMELOVE
