Diamond Notes - Week 1


Alex Armand
Louisiana Scouting Director

Opening Day has come and gone, and the first official week of the Louisiana High School baseball season is complete.  Familiar faces continued to shine and newcomers also began to make a name for themselves.  Below, we highlight some of the top performances, from across the state in Week 1 (02/21/22-02/27/22), as well as our Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week.  To submit your player(s) for next week's edition of Diamond Notes, please email Alex Armand ([email protected]) with the player's name, class, position, and any relevant statistics from the week.  We are fired up for what's in store in Week 2 and the rest of the season!
