Div. 1- South West District Preview (Reg. 5)

So if you are new here welcome to the Region/District that is close to my (Noah’s) heart. And every year this is one that is one of the harder ones to put together/judge/rank/all of the above because A. I can't be biased, B. there is always talent coming out of every nook and cranny in this region, C. there is only one team that can make it to Grand Junction out of this region and almost every year there could be 2-3 teams that could make noise at the World Series but only one can make it, and D. when it comes time for the Region 5 Tournament anything and everything can happen and i have seen that first hand. 

Over the past decade there has been a huge variety of teams with only 3 teams making multiple trips over the past 10 years with McLennan going in 2015 (National Runner-Ups), and 2017; Cisco in 2016 and 2012 (this one hurt on a personal level); and Midland in back to back years in 2013 and 2014. New Mexico punched their ticked in 2019 and Temple got the ticket in 2018 due to a very controversial call/situation that took place in the Region 5 Championship between Cisco and McLennan. 

As stated above and like almost all other regions there is a plethora of tallent that is in Region 5 this year which includes:

Clarendon’s- Kevin Bermudez

McLennan’s- Garret Martin, Logan Henderson, and Kevin Skweres

New Mexico Militaries- Rudy Solis

Odessa’s- Guilio Monello, Sean Stephens, and Trevor Hatton

Howard’s- Broch Holmes, Justin Wishkoshki, and Nicco Cole

El Paso’s- Seth Homfeld, Oscoar Cuello, and Pablo Cortes

Weatherford’s- Hunter Rosson, Brett Brown, and Cade Farr

Grayson’s- Wade Elliott, Shay Harris, and Nathan Art

New Mexico’s- Adrian Torres and Justin Butz

Final 201 List

Just to make this clear before people start to critic this list and call the rankings for not what they really are. This is Not a "Draft Prospect" ranking. For those that have listened, Followed, and know what what we do we create this list with how the player performed and how we think they will be at the College Level. Now is there some cross over? Yes, of course. But sometimes as many people have said sometimes the best Statistical player is not the best Draft Prospect and vice-versa.

Div. 1- South West District Preview (Reg. 5)

This District is one that has a rich history of postseason success. Between the years of 1999-2009, there were 6 National Titles and 7 National Title games. One of those being the best record arguably ever recorded by a college baseball team in 2009 when Howard went 63-1 and a National record 56-game Win streak. Since 2009 there have been 6 different schools that have made the trip. Only 1 has gone back to back years winning the Region 5 title (Midland ‘13-’14). There also have been only 1 National Title game since the ‘09 season when McLennan was the National Runner up in 2015. 

Last year's winner was New Mexico claiming its first region crown since 2007. The Thunderbirds, unfortunately, went 1-2 BBQ losing to Chattahoochee Valley and Monroe in the first two days of the tournament. 

Previous Winners: ‘19 New Mexico, ‘18 Temple, ‘17 McLennan, ‘16 Cisco, ‘15 McLennan (National-Runner Up), ‘14 Midland, ‘13 Midland, ‘12 Cisco, ‘11 Grayson, ‘10 Temple, ‘09 Howard (National Champs, 63-1 Record), ‘08 Grayson (National Champs), ‘07 New Mexico (National Runner Up), ‘06 Temple, ‘05 New Mexico (National Champs), ‘04 Grayson, ‘03 Grayson, ‘01 North Central Texas (National Champs), ‘00 Grayson (National Champs) ‘99 Grayson (National Champs). 

This year's crop of players coming could be argued to be one of the best in recent years. McLennan's Jalen Battles (Arkansas) and Connor Phillips take home both the Pre-Season Player (Battles) and Pitcher (Phillips).
