Best batting average in the nation? UNCG Baseball, by far.

120716feature_baseballCampus Weekly kept you aware during the 2016 baseball season that UNCG had the best batting average of all NCAA teams. But how did that finish up? The NCAA recently posted via social media who had the best batting average at season’s end. It wasn’t close.

UNCG had the top batting average in Div. I Baseball at .346, a whopping 21 points higher than second place at .325.

And by the way, if you’re a hot-stove-league aficionado and are already thinking of next season, the team’s schedule has been announced. It’s here. They begin play on the road against perennial power South Carolina.
