As the majority of our local Division 3 baseball teams return home to resume play in late March, there was some significant change in New England Baseball Journal’s Coaches Poll this week.
Compared to last Wednesday’s edition, only one of the 10 ranked teams is new but eight of the other nine improved upon their place. While one Little East program ascended back to the No. 1 spot that it held for much of last season, another has gotten off to a slow start and fell out of the ranks for the first time.
One ranked team carries an undefeated record into Wednesday, and another just lost a program-best start during Tuesday’s action.
NEBJ’s Division 3 Coaches Poll is voted upon by coaches and sports information directors throughout New England and will be released weekly on Wednesdays during the season. Coaches and SIDs interested in participating in the voting should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
