  • oh no said,

    Nin Marrero should be on one of these three list he batted a staggering .544 with 49 hits and 11 steals he is well deserving but the list that is up now is pretty acurate

  • The Watcher said,

    Pretty acurate teams but the coach of the year is wrong. That guy at Grimsley won ten games with basically a JV team. And Played Ragsdale and Graham 1 to one run games.

  • In A Pickle said,

    Pretty close on the first team but I think the Fultz kid and the Kellam kid should be there

  • gannon said,

    Very little love for the private school kids. That is to be expected, but there are a few that are unquestionably in the top15-20 players in this area that aren’t on your list. That is to be expected though. What is the criteria for these teams. Not complaining, just more curious than anything.

  • Andy said,

    Our list came from the kids we saw during the season and from the input of our readers during article we ran back at the end of the season.

    We didn’t see everybody, but we do have a pretty good pulse for what is happening in the local baseball community.

    If players go unnoticed, many times it is because they have never contacted us to let us know about their talents.

    I can give you three honorable mention names right quick that can make many of the lists, but we didn’t have a load of numbers on these kids from the past season and we know they have talent.

    1)Logan Self-HPW
    2)Nin Marrero-WG
    3)Zach Reffey-Page

    Logan and Zach both play for the Proehlific Power so you know they are good players and I have now seen numbers on Nin that tells us the same thing about him.

    My beef would be with the coaches that have players who they feel like are quality talents and they don’t let us know. This site is the spot. If we don’t know, then nobody is going to know.

    We have another list coming out later today, so stay tuned…..

    gannon, I know I got a little long-winded, but thank-you for reading and thank-you for inquiring about the process. The people that read and respond to this site are the ones that make it click and clique.
