    1. Your not really missing anything ,Classical is a good solid team with strong leadership skills, they play a really good defense,solid infield and outfield ,As Far as pitching wise their rotation is basically sophmores who have the ability to go deep into games. David Barnard a sophomore surprised Peabody by getting ahead of almost every single hitter in the line up,He is a 6″1 RHP whose fastball appeared to be hitting the mid 80s.This is not the last you will hear from this young man.This team is well coached and the senior Captains appear to be helping the younger players.This team also has 4 of the Babe ruth world series members from last years great 15 year old Lynn team that played for the championship in North Dakota.

  1. Barnstable is a paper tiger. Out played by Nauset. Serious holes in there line up and pitching after Holcomb looks like it may be a big question mark. Not a top 20 team

  2. Is this an eastern mass poll? Except for St. John’s shrewsbury there is no one west of 495. We actually have electricity, indoor plumbing and a few teams that can play baseball out this way. If you have a vote do a bit extra work and evaluate all regions.

    1. Including the team that BEAT St Johns shrewsbury who is 6-0 !!!! But doesn’t make the top 25!?? Time to do some research guys!!!

  3. Take a look at Jimmy Dolan from whitman hanson highschool. The junior captain has a .29 era and is hitting over 400. He is one to watch.
