Arlington Martin, Southlake Carroll baseball teams in national rankings as playoffs approach
In this week's Perfect Game Top 50 and MaxPreps Top 50 national high school baseball rankings, you'll find Southlake Carroll and Arlington Martin.
But not in both.
In the Perfect Game rankings, which has Pearland as the top Texas team at No. 6, Arlington Martin is No. 39. Perfect Game's other Texas teams are Lake Travis (14), Cypress Ranch (16), Corpus Christi Moody (17), Klein Collins (35), Houston Langham Creek (38) and San Antonio O'Connor (45).
In the MaxPreps rankings, which has Moody as the top Texas team at No. 7, Southlake Carroll is at No. 21. The other Texas teams in the MaxPreps rankings are San Antonio O'Connor (8), Pearland (9), Corpus Christi Calallen (20), The Woodlands (35) and Lake Travis (49).
A lot of difference in the two rankings, but high school baseball is extremely difficult to gauge. And there are nearly a dozen teams in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 4A and 5A that I could see making a deep run.
Playoffs start in a little more than two weeks. The season really moves.
