Div. 3- South District Preview (Reg. 2, 5, & 14)

When people think about Texas Junior College Baseball you generally think of the San Jac’s, the Howard’s, the Grayson’s, and the McLennan’s. But there is a part of the state that is just as good that gets very little love due to the fact that they have the “Division Three” Title or Stigma.

The South District in Texas has been arguably the most successful division 3 district for the past decade. This might have part to do with the fact that they play earlier than most other division 3 schools. But it also has to do with the fact that since 2011 this district has had 6 national title games (Eastfield-2011) and Tyler (2014-2018), with 5 National Titles (2011, 2014-2017) with Brookhaven in 2019 finishing 3rd at the tournament.

As you would expect this is also a very team district with talent-

Tyler’s- Adam Davis, Cooper Rawls, and Heath Hood

Coastal Bend’s-Jacob Wilson, and Eric Martinez

Brookhaven’s-Brett Wagner, JJ Davis, and Andrew Acierni

Cedar Valley’s-Mario Pena, and Corbin Thompson

Div. 1- Plains District Preview (Reg. 6)

Kansas for many that do not know is one of the top places to go see Junior College baseball in the country. With top talent every year, National Ranked teams year in and year out. But for some reason when they get to Grand Junction Things just have not gone their way. The last time any team from this district has made it to the National Championship game was back in 1998 when Cowley won 15-11 over San Jac and yes that is older than most likely every single player that is playing in that district/region this year. 

With that being said it is about time a school from kansas finally got over the hump.. Three of the last 4 years the ticket has been punched by Cowley (2019, 2017, 2016) with the other Ticket being punched by Barton for their first trip to Grand Junction. 

The crop of talent this year is up among some of the best in the country across the entire country:

Johnson County’s- Quinton Hall, Jay Long, and Jackson Galloway

Barton’s- Alex Rodgers, and Carson Pracht

Colby’s- Brayedn Cust

Cloud’s- Kayden Beurgedard, and Evan Wilde

Neosho’s- Drew Miller, and Khalil Thrasher

Fort Scott’s- Dylan Foo and Jakob Machuca

Cowley’s- J’Briell Easley, Blake Roberts, and Janson Reeder

Div 2-South Atlantic Preview (Reg. 8 & 10)

If you follow division 2 junior college baseball then you know about this district. Out on the east coast taking names. They are in a weird spot solely because the Florida teams go and play cream of the crop down in Florida. While the teams up north end up playing the likes of Florence Darlington Tech, and  Spartanburg Methodist who are national powers year in and year out. 

The district’s last National Championship game was back in 2008 when Lenior took home the runner up trophy. There has also not been back to back winners. Pasco-Hernando took the world by storm in 2019 finishing 3rd in Enid losing their games to the #1 team going into the tournament in Pearl Rivers, and eventual Champions NOC-Enid, they happened to make a trip in 2014. Brunswick took trips to Enid in 2018, 2016, and 2013. Pitt took a trip in 2017; Catawba Valley went in 2015, and 2012. And Southeastern (NC) made a trip in 2011 to wrap up the past decade. 

The talent as well as the talent across the rest of the country is at an all time high. It is lead by:

Catawba Valley’s- Colt Byars, Mason Herbert, and Javier Martinez

Patrick Henry’s- Max Harper, and Drew Harfow

Bryant & Stratton’s- Jose Carzola, Carson Arguin, and Caleb Pittman

Brunswick’s- Alex Reed, Cam Murphy, and Ethan Haislip

Paul D. Camp- Carlos Bland, Jared Sowalter, and Quincy Sippio

2020 MLB Draft Rankings

So for those who thought that the Final 201 was a draft ranking... Well again read the opening paragraph.

This is the JBB Draft Rankings.

Due to the draft being shorter than it was suppose to be we did not see the need for the rankings to be as big as it could be. This is who we feel will have a chance to have their named called when the draft happens. This is looked at with a different lens than the for-mentioned 201 list.
