Exactly four weeks ago we took a deep look into the 14-Major classification USSSA national Power Rankings. While the fall ball season was young at that point, it’s always key to get off to a fast start.
A month later, two new teams have cracked the top 5 and there’s a new top dog, YETI Baseball Club Crawdads.
- YETI Baseball Club Crawdads: The Crawdads, from Austin, Texas, jumped from No.4 last month to the top spot based on two tournament victories. At the Fall Grand Slam Qualifier they went 3-0, and this month at the Hurricane Harvey Memorial Super NIT they were 5-0 against top competition. Manager Josh Sanders has guided his group to a 13-0 overall record, including 6-0 In Class.
- Dallas Mustangs- Menchaca: The Mustangs fall one spot due to their fifth place finish at the DFW Fall State Championships last weekend. They got off to a hot start in pool play against the Dallas Raiders and DBI Blacksox, but dropped a 6-0 decision to the Easton Elite- Jacks. Manager Gary Menchaca has led his team to seven In Class victories against just one loss.
- Patriots Baseball- QC Voodoo (pictured above): A newcomer to the list from Springfield, Missouri, Queen City Voodoo has been active in USSSA play. Most recently they finished in third place at the BankPlus Fall Nationals Global World Series Qualifier along with a title at the Knocktoberfest Wood Bat Ring Tournament. They are 9-2 overall especially thrive in pool play, unbeaten in six games.
- Allstars: The Allstars from Hialeah, Florida, fall back two spots on the rankings primarily because they haven’t been active in recent weeks but their record speaks for itself. In three tournaments this fall season, the Allstars have two titles and a second place finish. Manager Yunet Caballero had led his team to a 13-1-1 overall mark.
- Arkansas Naturals: Another new team to the mix, the Naturals from Brookland have played in two USSSA tournaments this month and produced excellent results. At the Arkansas fall State Championships, manager Boyd Duvall’s squad went 5-0 before taking on the Travlers Select at the West TN Fall State Championships which was impacted by weather.
