ALBANY, GA (WALB) - It has been three years since Albany State won the SIAC baseball title.

For the Rams that time span is considered a drought.

Albany State looks to reclaim the SIAC baseball throne at the conference tournament that starts tomorrow at the Paul Eames Complex.

Ironically, Albany State did not win the SIAC title the last time Albany host the tournament in 2005.

That was during a time when the Rams won four of five conference titles.

Stillman College has won the last two SIAC baseball titles and the Tigers are believe to be the Rams biggest obstacle to winning the title.

Edward Taylor said. "Most of our guys are new as far as most of the starting lineup goes. Some of the guys are here from back when we lost it in Albany. So we are looking to forward to it."

Senior Roger Jones said. "It would be wonderful. It was a great experience our freshman year. There is feeling like it so I just want to feel it again."

Junior DeMarcusPrice said. "We have got a couple of seniors that were on the past team that I got a ring. I feel we should give them another chance to get another ring before they leave."
