All this week (April 22-25, 2019) we presented the pre-summer Top 50 teams for the 14U age division and today we feature the Next Teams In (#’s 51-80).
Tomorrow (Sunday, April 28), we’ll finish our rundown of the age division with a look at the Teams to Watch who may break through into the the Top 50 and even make a run at a national championship.
Teams were selected based on performances and results in events over the last year, including this winter and fall (understanding that showcase events are more for recruiting exposure and don’t necessarily reflect a team’s abilities), as well as how they project for the summer with the talent returning and the addition of impactful new ones for the upcoming run at Nationals.
Input was acquired by the Extra Inning Softball staff watching teams and players in person as well as insights provided by club and college coaches across the country.
These lists include a mixture of second and first year 14U teams with the intention of projecting how the teams will perform over time, especially in key summer events.
Here are the previous lists as well:
