The Alabama Crimson Tide baseball team is ranked No. 20 in the 2023 D1Baseball Preseason Poll.

According to RollTide.com, "The No. 20 ranking is the highest by any outlet so far this preseason and is the highest preseason ranking from D1 since the Crimson Tide opened the 2015 campaign at No. 20."

Nine SEC teams made the rankings, including seven of those in the top ten. Joining Alabama in the rankings is LSU at No. 1, Tennessee at No. 2, Ole Miss at No. 4, Texas A&M at No. 5, Florida at No. 7, Arkansas at No. 8, Vanderbilt at No. 10, and South Carolina at No. 23.

This is a jump for the Crimson Tide from one year ago as the team went into the season unranked in the preseason poll.
