2022 NAIA Baseball Top 25 Coaches Post-Season Poll (June 8)
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Southeastern (Florida) topped the chart with first place in all regular season NAIA Top 25 Coaches polls and ends the year with a sixth straight after winning the 2022 Avista-NAIA World Series Championship – the second of the history of the program. Lewis-Clark State (Idaho) is the Fire runner-up again with Faulkner (Ala.), Webber International (Fla.) and MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.) leaping up the standings with their playoff performances.
- The poll was voted on by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences and the Association of Independent Institutions.
- The Top 25 is determined by a point system based on how each voter ranks the top teams. A team receives 30 points for each vote for first place, 29 for second place and so on in the list.
- The highest and lowest ranking of each team (a non-scoring is considered a low rating) is deleted and the ranking of the team will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for each ballot (including including reduced ballots) on which the teams appear.
- Teams that receive only one point on the ballot are not considered “receiving votes”
- The frequency of polls is bi-weekly. This policy was approved by the National Administrative Council (NAC) prior to the 2016-17 college season. This change allows reviewers to consider more work between review periods.
