Perfect Game Baseball's dedication to promote the game of baseball now and in the future by hosting the highest quality amateur events while providing meaningful opportunities and information to players, families, MLB organizations, college coaches, and fans starts at the youth level! Giving youth baseball clubs the opportunity to play the game the right way against the best competition is what Perfect Game strives to achieve at all levels, starting with the up and coming stars in youth baseball.

After researching teams, compiling data, and working with PG's many regional scouts and tournament directors across the country, Perfect Game has updated the Top 100 National Spring Rankings. These Top 100 12U teams are paired with a list of additional teams who we believe are the top teams to watch as we continue to rank the best youth clubs. Perfect Game will continue to rank the Top Youth Teams as a greater emphasis on growing the game at the youth level continues to be a major focus. 

With spring finally here, youth baseball has kicked into gear. Every weekend top teams from around the country have been competing, and we have been watching! The first update to the rankings have a new top dog, multiple new teams in the Top 100, and a few big jumps after strong starts this season. 

Of the many great starts this spring, East Cobb Astros Orange, OneOEight, and 6-4-3 DP Cougars have impressed, each earning a notable jump in the rankings. The Top 10 has a new member, as the East Cobb Astros Orange have started off 2019 11-1 in PG events, competing against top teams on their way to two championships. OneOEight makes their first appearance in the Top 100 after showing their strength in the PG TX Invitational, beating ranked teams to finish behind the #1 Alamo Drillers for a runner-up finish. The 643 DP Cougars made the biggest leap in the rankings after an extremely impressive start to the spring, starting 15-3, winning a stacked PG Elite Showdown.
