Updated PBR Colorado 2018 Rankings

John Cackowski and PBR Staff

In the winter of 2015 PBR Colorado released our first ever 2018 rankings which consisted of 40 players. In the past four years Prep Baseball Report Colorado has had the opportunity to cover amateur baseball like no other organization has ever been able to do before in the state of Colorado. Between scouting numerous games last spring and summer, and having a great opportunity to see more 2018 grads at the Preseason All-State and Senior Games, we were able to move our 2018 ranking list to 175 players. 


Tanner O'Tremba OF / Cherry Creek, CO / 2018

Committed to Texas Tech. 6-foot, 215 pounds. Bats and throws right. The No. 1 overall 2018 O'Tremba has taken Cherry Creek and put them on his shoulders has been a one man wrecking crew at the plate for 4 years. Going into his senior year, not many players in state history have accomplished what the Texas Tech commit has since he started as a freshman. In his career O'Tremba has hit 21 homeruns, and driven in 86 RBI's. When this season is done, O'Tremba will most likely be in play as being No. 1 in Cherry Creek history in both of those categories.

Committed to Kentucky. 6-foot-2, 200 pounds. Bats and throws left. At the plate has a balanced stance and loads straight back, with a leg-kick stride.
