Much like the rest of the world, high school baseball has been directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and as such the majority of high schools nationwide are not only not in session, but also not playing sports. We hope that everyone remains safe during this time and we anxiously await the return of baseball.

With that being said, it only makes sense to suspend the high school ranking as the majority of the teams on the list have halted play over the last week. These rankings remain unchanged from the one we released a week ago and hopefully the majority of these schools will, at some point, safely resume playing and practicing and we can return to normalcy.

As the rankings currently stand, Tampa Jesuit (Fla.) hangs onto their No. 1 spot after, quite frankly, dominating the opposition to start the year. They're 9-0 with five victories via run rule, four shutouts and their closest victory came with a run margin of four. Senior ace Camden Minacci has been unhittable with 23 strikeouts to only two walks in 11 innings while the rest of the pitching staff has done a fantastic job. It's been business as usual for the offense with their main contributors hitting around .400 or better with Henry Politz and Jalen Niles both hitting .500 or better. 

Every state has enacted some sort of suspension of school across the country with more than half of the states closing all schools. Tournaments on the horizon are now in doubt as the National High School Invitational (NHSI), Boras Classic North and Boras Classic South have all been canceled as a result. We wish everyone good health and safety as this pandemic continues, and once we get high school baseball back across the country the rankings will return as well.
