2018 Preseason High School Baseball Top 50

The top 25 teams are selected through a poll of representatives from the Baseball Coaches Association (BCA) and Baseball America. This is the first in-season top 25 ranking of the 2018 season, though many states haven’t started playing and weather has caused delays in other states as well. The BCA and BA will update the top 25 rankings every other week through May.

Shawnee opens the 2018 season ranked No. 1 in the Baseball America Preseason High School Top 50, powered by .
