Unbeaten starts have the top pair of teams in New England Baseball Journal’s Prep School Coaches Poll maintaining their positions through the first two ranking periods of the regular season, but three other teams enter mid-April as big movers.
Taft has won its first four games and is one of two clubs that jumped into the latest Top 10 after starting the year having received votes. In addition, 14 other teams received top-10 consideration on at least one coach’s ballot.
As a refresher, teams receive 10 points for a first-place vote, nine for a second-place vote, eight for a third-place vote, etc. Coaches from around New England serve as voting panelists for the poll, which is released each Tuesday during the season. Those interested in participating can email Joshua Kummins (email@example.com) for more information.
