The University of Nevada baseball team is receiving votes in the Collegiate Baseball Preseason poll released today. The Wolf Pack returns five starters and the entire weekend rotation from a squad that captured a share of the 2012 Western Athletic Conference title. The Pack went 32-25 last season and 11-7 in conference play.

Heading the list of returners is 2012 WAC Pitcher of the Year Bradey Shipley. Shipley posted a 9-4 record with a 2.20 ERA. Senior Tom Jameson returns after earning first-team All-WAC honors a year ago. Jameson was 7-2 with a 2.55 ERA. Outfielder Brooks Klein was a first-team All-WAC selection after leading the team with a .335 average, eight home runs and 42 RBI.

Nevada opens the season Feb. 15 against Kansas in Mesa, Ariz. The Jayhawks and Wolf Pack will play four games at Hohokam Park, the spring training facility of the Chicago Cubs. The home opener is set for Feb. 22 versus Northern Illinois.
