NAIA RPI Rankings

Below is the standard RPI calculations for NAIA baseball results through May 09th, 2018. The formula used is a team’s winning percentage (25%), its opponents’ winning percentage (aka strength of schedule) (50%) and the winning percentage of those opponents’ opponents (25%).

  • Only games against official NAIA competition are included. Forfeit wins (primarily scheduled contests against St. Gregory’s) are excluded. Recent changes to some game results being changed to forfeits (primarily Mid-America Christian) have not been adjusted.
  • For the purposes of accuracy, St. Katherine’s and  Ottawa University Arizona are included as NAIA teams. Their overwhelming majority of games are played against NAIA competition. Included these results better reflects the precision of the overall numbers.
  • Update – Trinity Baptist College, Bethesda University of California, Ecclesia College, Randall University have been added to the table. Although they are not officially NAIA teams, they’ve each played at least 20 games against NAIA opposition. Consequently they are included; however only the results against NAIA teams are included. If they played against each other, those contests are not included. This is the case with St. Katherine and Ottawa as well. 

Results were compiled from the NAIA scoreboard which is prone to error. The results file can be seen here: naiascores0509. The reporting of any errors or omission to @_eephuspitch on Twitter would be greatly appreciated.
