The Class 4A Texas Association of Baseball Coaches Pre-season Baseball Poll has a distinct East Texas flavor.
Included in the mix are the Rusk Eagles, who check in at No. 10.
The Eagles, who are coached by Robert Ellis, return a solid core of players off of last season's 15-9 squad.
Rusk advanced to the area finals last season before being eliminated by Lorena.
Argyle is ranked at the top of the list, followed by perennial East Texas baseball powers Kilgore and Carthage.
Sinton comes in at No.4, just ahead of Benbrook, Iowa Park, Waco-Robinson, Liberty Hill and Decatur.
