Cape Baseball League Snags Top Freshmen Players

by Greg in

UPDATED: Thanks to an anonymous post, I am updating this article to reflect that CodBall's database is good but not perfect. Due to some spelling conventions I missed 4 players who are in the top 25, and will play on the Cape. So, nearly half of the nation's top 25 freshmen are now on active CCBL rosters. Baseball America has published its pick of college baseball’s top Freshmen this season, and eight of the top 25 are currently on active CCBL rosters for the 2007 summer season. In other words, one-third of the top players will be on display this summer in the CCBL.

As of tonight I only see 6 of 10 rosters posted.

CodBall maintains a database (rudimentary) of active CCBL players and has cross-checked the Baseball America list with those rosters that have been published to date.

There are likely other CCBL players among those ranked 26-50, but I didn't carefully check those.

Freshmen were ranked by Baseball America writer Aaron Fitt according to both immediate impact and long-term potential. As with most Baseball America rankings, the tie goes to better prospect.
