Top Newcomers to the list

Charlie KerzakTrey Ritchie

- 6-foot, 180-pound catcher Charlie Kerzak (Morgantown) checks in at No. 9 following a solid performance at the Pittsburgh Outlaws Scout Day in January. The right-handed hitter showcased middle-of-the order potential offensively and sound defensive skills behind the dish.

- 6-foot-3, 185-pound RHP Trey Ritchie (George Washington) follows closely behind entering the rankings at No. 11. A physical frame and a fastball that currently tops out at 80 mph makes Ritchie a definite follow in this class. The sophomore works out of mid-3/4 arm slot with excellent balance, rhythm and showed an ability to repeat his delivery at the recent West Virginia Gamers Scout Day.
