ICYMI – About Player Rankings:
When coming up with a list of the Top Ranked Players, Honorable Mentions, and Follows (Updated as they year goes on) we are taking into account every player in the State. We do not just promote players who just play in our events or attend our showcase, we are finding the top players statewide. We compile the list from discussions with coaches, scouts, in person events, and the widely used social media platforms. But of course nothing beats seeing players in person. We will continue update our list throughout the year.

2Dsports over the last two years has been attending many High School games throughout the state, been to every state championship tournaments game, and attended many Summer Tournaments/Showcases, and 2Dsports events. This is just the start.

It comes without saying that the more we see a player the more information we can collect and get a better grasp of where we see this player fit. But, a player wont move down a list simply because they aren’t attending more 2Dsports events or events we attend. Vise versa, a player who attends every event won’t move up a list for playing in more 2Dsports events. We are confident we can collect a lot of information in the state to fairly give our opinions on who we feel deserve to be at the top of the list.

Why jump into this new territory of Ranking Players? It’s good for the players, it will generate more discussion in the Louisiana Baseball Community, and will put more eyes on the tremendous talent we have in the state.

Will everyone agree this these rankings? Nope, never. Do we ever agree on rankings? It is subjective and we aren’t naive, but we expect the list at the end of the year come very close to any Professional Scouting List. At the end of the day, if you are on this list you are a very good player. Over the course of the year a lot can change.

We are excited to go above and beyond in covering the state of Louisiana in baseball. We look forward seeing all these great athletes as they embark on their college and professional journey.

Over the course of the next week we will continue to release our Top 10 Player Rankings in the 2023, 2024, 2025, and 2026 grad classes. We will start compiling a list for 2027 grads that will be released in the Fall of 2023. Along with the Top 10 we will release some honorable mentions and follows in no particular order. Our goal over the next year and beyond is to grow the Top 10 rankings to 20, 30, 40, etc. VIEW PREVIOUS ARTICLES
