This season's UK baseball team wasn't supposed to amount to much according to preseason polls.

If you asked the Cats what they thought in the preseason, you heard phrases like "We're going to shock some people."

Looks like the guys who play the game were right this year.  Kentucky is an unreal 41-11 (18-9 SEC).  At home, UK has amassed a 29-5 mark.  On the road, 10-6.  2-0 on neutral fields.

Not bad for a team most in the media had written off before the first pitch of the season.

Now, the Bat Cats aren't just shocking people, they're contending for an SEC regular-season crown...and that leaves most speechless.

Kentucky isn't supposed to do this on the diamond.  The hardwood, sure.  But this is baseball, two-time defending College World Series champ South Carolina territory.  LSU and Arkansas country. 

Guess it's all just part of the Kentucky Effect.
