Rivals: NC is 4th best college baseball state

The state of North Carolina really has come a long way the past few seasons. North Carolina obviously leads the state with three-consecutive College World Series appearances, while N.C. State is second behind the Tar Heels after making a super regional last season. East Carolina also is a consistent postseason contender, while Elon has done a great job considering the competition in the area. Much credit also goes to UNC Wilmington and Charlotte, which have become notable programs the past few seasons.
