First State Baseball Rankings Released

New York State released its first set of baseball rankings yesterday. The rankings include games through April 21.

Several Section II teams are represented in the poll including Shenendehowa (No. 2 Class AA) and Nisakayuna (No. 7 Class AA).

The Plainsmen are really good, so it’s no surprise to see them up so high. A good pitching staff, a deep lineup and great team speed make them a very scary team on both the section and state levels.

The Silver Warriors have made a real return to prominence in the season’s early going, and they have one of the area’s best players in junior OF Garrett Whitley.

The two unbeatens will play tonight at Joe Bruno Stadium, 7 p.m.

In Class A, Burnt Hills (No. 12), Queensbury (No. 14), and Scotia (No. 16) are all hovering around the top 10. Burnt Hills is a team looking to make some serious noise. They are going to be able to stay in most games, most notably because of star catcher Dan Maynard’s ability to handle a pitching staff and limit a run game.

In Class B, Hudson sits at No. 2 with Chatham (No. 9), Catskill (No. 16), and Albany Academy (No. 19).

Greenwich is ranked No. 3 in Class C while Hoosic Valley (No. 9), Fort Plain (No. 10), and Rensselaer (No. 13) provide Section II with four teams within the top 15.

Finally, in Class D, Fort Ann holds the No. 1 ranking. Loudonville Christian is sixth.

With the weather finally starting to shift in the right direction, it should make for a great rest of the baseball season.
