Courtesy: Saint Louis Athletics

ST. LOUIS –Saint Louis baseball has been named a top-100 program of the modern era by D1Baseball.com. Saint Louis was also mentioned the last time D1Baseball compiled the list in 2015. Programs were rated by recent success (within 5-10 years), coaching staff quality, facilities, scholarship/financial aid situation, conference dynamics and recruiting/player development.

Under head coach Darin Hendrickson, the Billikens have made two NCAA regional appearances and won four Atlantic 10 regular-season titles. Saint Louis has brought in multiple nationally ranked recruiting classes and has competed in the Atlantic 10 Conference tournament in each of the last seven seasons. There has been at least one Billiken drafted in the MLB first-year Player Draft in each of the last five seasons, headlined by James Norwood, a seventh-round pick of the Chicago Cubs in 2014.

The Billikens play Parkland College on Saturday, Sept. 30, at Busch Stadium as part of a doubleheader with the St. Louis Cardinals. The Cardinals’ game begins at 3:15 p.m., with the Billikens playing immediately after. For tickets to both games, call the Billiken baseball office at 314-977-3172.
