At the start of a new school year, it’s time to take stock of a new wave of prep prospects who could impact conference championship races during the spring.
These student-athletes endured plenty of off-the-field work to earn the recruitment of prep baseball coaches looking to bolster their respective rosters. With many student-athletes lost to graduation last spring, the objective for coaches was to replace old faces with new ones in an effort to build quality depth.
New England Baseball Journal staff reached out to prep coaches across New England to find out which first-year players have been brought in for the 2024 season. This includes postgraduates on down to freshmen.
Players’ previous schools and state are also listed, except for freshmen in which their hometown was listed instead of middle school. Here’s a look at 15 potential impact newcomers Fairchester Athletic Association, Eastern Independent League, and Lakes Region rosters heading into the 2023-24 school year.
