Hit Machine-Sheboygan 13u
We love seeing those unranked or lower ranked teams ascend high into the rankings. Each week new teams emerge and compete. We want to recognize those underdogs! These are the “Biggest Movers”.
AHQ9u won a championship and also beat the #11 ranked Future Swings Black. This up-and-coming program was unranked to start the year and are clearly poised to make some noise this year. Good work fellas!
SJ SandSharks(NJ) and PRD Tri State Ghost(NJ) 10u
Unranked to start the year, the Sandsharks have earned the #8 spot in New Jersey. They competed with the top team Cherry Hill National and beat the #9 ranked New Jersey team. Being an underdog sometimes pays off. Perhaps the biggest omission by us in the pre-season rankings was PRD Ghost out of NJ. They have won the last two PG events and beat the # 1 New York Team. As a result, this has catapulted to the top team in New Jersey.
Placentia Punishers(CA) 11u
The Placentia Punishers are rolling. They have an overall record of 39-8-1 and have beat the Scottsdale Dirtbags, MBA Grays, Diamond Dawgs, and So Cal Truth. This team was overlooked in the preseason rankings and has proved to be a formidable force in California and the country. We see them continuing to compete at a high level.
Sheboygan, Wisconsin is a great town nestled between Green Bay and Milwaukee on the shores of lake Michigan. What else does Sheboygan have? Great baseball! In 2021, Hit Machine-Sheboygan is 8-0 on the season beating #3 Hitters twice. Starting the season unranked and climbing to #3 in the Wisconsin State rankings is very impressive. Keep up the good work boys!
Congratulations to all the underdogs and fly-under-the-radar teams. We expect several more teams to emerge as the season progresses.
