The first New England Baseball Journal Division 3 Top 10 of May comes out as the postseason begins across five different conferences. Only the Little East, MASCAC, and NESCAC are concluding regular-season play this weekend, but the former and latter of those three leagues continue to provide the regional ranks with multiple representatives.
Little has changed throughout the season, with Southern Maine not only No. 1 in our rankings, but in Wednesday's national Perfect Game Top 25. This week’s D3baseball.com/NCBWA Top 25 has the Huskies third, while NEWMAC rivals Babson (7th) and Wheaton (15th) continue to be ranked as their postseason begins this weekend.
