2021 High School Baseball Rankings: Top 25 Teams In The Country



Baseball America’s High School team rankings are selected through a poll of representatives from the National High School Baseball Coaches Association (NHBCA). The country is split into eight different regions, with region chairs nominating teams from their geographic areas for consideration for the rankings nationwide. Records indicated through play on May 2.

You would have to look closely to realize our high school rankings have been updated this week. There was plenty of consistency from the top teams in the country, so much so that the top nine teams check in with the exact same order as our previous update. Buford (Ga.) High continues to rank as the top team in the country, with a flawless 31-0 record.

Reagan High in San Antonio is the newcomer to the top ten this week, and it didn't come from too far outside of that range, going from 13 on our previous update to No. 10 this week. Reagan's inclusion in the top team gives the Southern Region four teams inside the top 10 including No. 2 Madison (Miss.) Central, No. 4 Barbe High and No. 6 Jackson (Miss.) Prep.

Those four teams inside the top ten match the Southeast region for the most in the country. The Southeast region is represented by No. 1 Buford, in addition to No. 3 Tampa Jesuit, No. 7 Stoneman Douglass and No. 9 Farragut.

The Pacific Coast region is the only other region with teams inside the top 10 at this point—they land the remaining three teams that make up the top 10.

Three new teams entered the top 25 this week: No. 20 St. Mary Prep (Orchard Lake, Mich.), No. 23 Calallen High (Corpus Christi, Texas) and No. 25 Trinity High (Louisville). Teams dropping out of the top 25 this week include Dana Hills High (Dana Point, Calif.), Gregory-Portland High (Portland, Texas) and Bainbridge High (Bainbridge Island, Wash.).
