With Mother Nature throwing plenty of wrenches into the Maryland High School baseball season up to this point, games have been sporadic at best.  However, there have been plenty of teams that have been able to overcome the elements and get games in.  Let’s take a look at those programs and how they have been able to perform (in alphabetical order).

HS Scoreboard: Games Through March 22

Annapolis (1-2)
The Panthers are off to 1-2 start on the year, beating Crossland 17-0 and losing two tough games against Great Mills (4-2) and Chopticon (7-1) Aidan Fowler is on a hot start, hitting .800 (4-5) in two games played.

Archbishop Spalding (4-0)
The Cavaliers are off to a hot start at 4-0 and doing so against some tough competition.  Spalding beat public school power Reservoir 3-1 in extra innings, no hit Good Counsel, and won another late inning game against Georgetown Prep.
