No surprise that the first in-season Baseball America Top 25 rankings have a lot of shuffling going-on since the preseason poll was released in mid-February. In fact, only one team held-on to its preseason spot.
There's a new #1 as preseason top dog Parkview (Georgia) lost its first game, which allowed preseason #3 Cathedral Catholic out of San Diego to move-up to the top perch. Parkview falls to #2. In all three teams dropped-out of the Top 25, allowing three new teams in.
