BINGHAMTON (WBNG) - The Binghamton University baseball team is the unanimous favorite to win the America East, the conference announced Thursday when it released its preseason baseball poll. Binghamton picked up six first place votes, the seventh belongs to BU head coach Tim Sinicki who isn't allowed to vote for his own team.
It's the second straight year Binghamton has been picked to win the conference. The Bearcats have won the past two America East regular season crowns. Binghamton returns five all-conference selections.
Season opens February 16 when the Bearcats face Northwestern State in Louisiana.
