The Wright State baseball team is the unanimous choice to win the Horizon League title this season, garnering all six first-place votes in the preseason coaches poll, which was released Wednesday.
WSU returns four all-league players from last year’s team, which fell one game short of winning a third consecutive regular-season title.
Among the top returners for the Raiders are reigning Horizon League Freshman of the Year, starting pitcher Ryan Weiss, along with fellow first team all-league selection Matt Morrow (second base).
Redshirt senior relief pitcher Derek Hendrixson and sophomore third baseman Seth Gray, both of whom earned second team all-league accolades in 2017, also return for WSU, which went 38-21 overall and 21-9 in the HL last year in Jeff Mercer’s first season as coach.
Defending champ Illinois-Chicago is picked second with 29 poll points to WSU’s 36. Wisconsin-Milwaukee is third (20), followed by Northern Kentucky (19), Oakland (14) and Youngstown State (8).

After missing the last four games, Marvin Bagley III will return to the Duke Blue Devils starting lineup on Saturday against the Syracuse Orange at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
WRALSportsFan.com reported on Saturday morning that Bagley had recovered enough from a mild knee sprain to return after over two weeks on the shelf.
The Blue Devils found their groove without the superstar freshman, winning all four of the games that they played and making the switch to running primarily zone on defense. That shift along with moving Grayson Allen into more of a distributing role has resulted in an average margin of victory of 17 points per game with Bagley out.
With Bagley returning, he figures to slot into the middle of their zone and gives Allen a dynamic post presence to run offense through. So Duke should have an opportunity to finish their season on a high note and contend for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament with the home tilt against Syracuse, a trip to Virginia Tech and then North Carolian at home to finish the season.
Despite missing the four games, Bagley still leads the ACC in double-doubles on the season and is averaging 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game on the season. Duke was 19-5 with Bagley in the lineup but had lost three of their last four prior to his injury late in the loss to North Carolina.

Former Horned Frogs linebacker David Hawthorne voiced his support for TCU and coach Gary Patterson on Saturday.
Patterson, along with TCU and the Big 12, is being sued by former TCU receiver Kolby Listenbee.
Listenbee alleged a “pattern of abuse and harassment,” according to Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Stefan Stevenson, and is seeking more than $1 million in damages for TCU’s treatment of his injury during the 2015 season.
“This lawsuit makes my stomach turn and it gets even worse when you see that the people behind it were the first people to grab the trophy celebrating the joys TCU brought to them,” Hawthorne wrote in a Facebook post, which he shared to his public Twitter account.
“God forbid you feel pressure from the coach that wants you to live up to a potential that you can’t even see in yourself. God forbid you receive a 300,000 dollar scholarship to play football and someone expects you to actually play. God forbid you play a violent sport for a living and you get hurt, join the crowd.”
Here is the full message:
— David Hawthorne (@D_Hawthorne57) February 24, 2018
Hawthorne joins another former Frog — ex-TCU quarterback Casey Pachall — in publicly supporting Patterson following the lawsuit.
Hawthorne was an undrafted free agent out of TCU in 2008 before playing four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks and four more with the New Orleans Saints.
