2021 High School Baseball Rankings: Top 25 Teams In The Country

Baseball America’s High School team rankings are selected through a poll of representatives from the National High School Baseball Coaches Association (NHSBCA). The country is split into eight different regions, with region chairs nominating teams from their geographic areas for consideration for the rankings nationwide. Records indicated through play on May 31.

After moving into the No. 1 spot on our high school team rankings in our previous update, Madison (Miss.) Central High continues to hold firm at the top, thanks to a 2-0 stretch that included making the championship in Mississippi's 6A baseball state championship, which kicks off Wednesday.

Coach Patrick Robey's team has ranked no worse than No. 2 this season since the NHSBCA has expanded to national rankings and currently sits with a 32-2 overall record.

Each team inside the top 10 was previously ranked on the top 25, though two teams who were inside the top 10 on our last update fall from the top 25 this week, including Allatoona High (Acworth, Ga.) and Columbus High (Miami). Allatoona checked in at No. 5 and Columbus at No. 8 in our previous ranking. 

Today's update includes a few recognizable newcomers who joined the top 25 after being unranked in our previous update, led by Southern California power JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Calif.) at No. 15 and Georgia's annually competitive Parkview High (Lilburn, Ga.) at No. 17.

Four additional teams joined the top 25 in the back end of the list this week, including Houston County High (Warner Robins, Ga.) at No. 19, Gregory-Portland High (Portland, Texas) at No. 21, Fort Zumwalt West High (O'Fallon, Mo.) at No. 22 and Mosley High (Lynn Haven, Fla.) at No. 25.

Six teams dropped out of the top 25 this week, including Reagan High (San Antonio), Farragut High (Knoxville, Tenn.),  Lake Travis High (Austin) and Tuttle (Okla.) High—in addition to the previously mentioned Allatoona and Columbus programs.
