Florida has grown accustomed to being highly regarded heading into the college baseball season.

Since the inception of the D1Baseball.com preseason poll (2015), the Gators have entered the season ranked either first or second.

The Gators will enter the 2019 season ranked #6, though the expectations in Gainesville remain the same.

The Gators finished the 2018 season with a 49-21 record and have established McKethan Stadium as a true home field advantage, compiling a 31-6 mark in the park despite facing top competition.

Florida will rely on junior RHP Tyler Dyson to lead the pitching staff and OF Wil Dalton to power the offense this season.

D1Baseball.com is the third publication to release their preseason poll as Collegiate Baseball (6) and Perfect Game (9) have Florida ranked inside the Top-10.
