The 2018 Louisiana high school season officially kicks off today, as teams around the state begin the official 2018 season. Baseball season in Louisiana is virtually in full swing, as the college schedule began this weekend, so the time is here for the Prep Baseball Report Louisiana staff to release its high school Preseason Power 25 team rankings.

In the coming days, our scouting staff will release the complete list, but today we release No.’s 1 – 5. Subsequently, the Power 25 team rankings will be updated on a weekly basis, and available for PBR+, ProspectPLUS, and ScoutPLUS subscribers.
