LSU begins preseason practice Friday, and the 2023 season starts on February 17, when the Tigers host to Western Michigan.

LSU is one of eight Southeastern Conference teams appearing in the Baseball America preseason Top 25, along with No. 2 Tennessee, No. 3 Florida, No. 6 Vanderbilt, No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 10 Ole Miss, No. 11 Arkansas and No. 22 Auburn.
