There are a few things i need to address about this ranking before you attack,criticise, ect. Frist, this is not a Draft Board/Draft Prospect Ranking, now of course the better the stats and the season are sure that can impact where someone might fall. But this is not solely a draft prospect ranking rather a ranking of who has had the best first half. Second, i do realize that a lot of teams have not played as many games as others. Some schools in the midwest and north east have not played as many games do to the weather that has been affecting the country and tried to account for that as best I could. Third, if I missed the position or commit please let me know and I will make sure that I fix it. With all this being said let’s dive into the Top 100 NJCAA First Halfs. All Stat from 3/15/19.

 

We are just about half way through the season, a lot of teams are still just starting due to weather but that does not mean that guys have not put up good numbers and had great first halfs. This list is made up of 71 Division 1, 22 Division 2, and 7 Division 3 players spanning  69 schools across the country. Breaking it down even further it is made up of 52 Position players and 48 Pitchers.

 

*All (1st,2nd,3rd) are compared to the rest of the Top 100.
