2021 Preseason High School Baseball Team Rankings By Region



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

A year after the coronavirus pandemic wiped out high school baseball across the country and prevented Baseball America from naming a High School Team of the Year our high school team rankings are back.

With the high school season starting at different times on the calendar depending on the region, the NHSBCA and Baseball America have moved back the release for the initial top 50 high school teams in the country. That national ranking should be expected in March.

For now, here are the top 10 high school baseball teams throughout each region of the country.
