Leading up to opening day, we published our team previews ahead of the 2024 spring season, touching on programs spanning all classifications, counting down through the official Prep Baseball Louisiana Preseason Power 25 Rankings.

Since Opening Day, our scouts have been out and about covering the 2024 season and will be publishing scout blogs and additional in-season content, such as our Power 25 updates, Player of the Week awards, Scout Blogs, Diamond Notes, and more.

The Top 5


The Top 5 has undergone big changes after the first week of the high school season, but Catholic BR is still our #1 team, after an impressive Week 1, in which they beat St. Paul's and then swept West Monroe.  Senior Trip Dobson came through in a big way for the Bears, both at the plate and on the mound, as he earned a win and a save and went 5-15 with 2 HR and 2 2B with 6 RBI and 4 R last week.  St. Amant moves up five spots to take the #2 spot this week, after going 5-0 last week with a big win over Alabama powerhouse Hewitt-Trussville, who started the season as the 4th ranked team in the Yellowhammer State.  Dutchtown moves into the Top-10 at #3, after a 5-0 week that also saw them take down Hewitt-Trussville of Alabama.  Benton moves up to #4, after a dominating first week of play, in which they scored 50 runs and only gave up 9 runs, on route to a 5-0 record.  Natchitoches Central rounds out the Top-5 at the #5 spot, after a 4-0 week, in which they scored 46 runs.  




Captain Shreve moves up 8 spots to #10, after going a perfect 5-0 on the week.  The Gators had key wins over Texas High (TX) and defending State Champion Ouachita Christian.

+ East Ascension makes their Power 25 Rankings debut this week at the #22 spot, after a 4-0 opening week.  The Spartans had a big opening day win over Covington and then beat Corinth (MS) last Friday.

+ Mandeville also makes their Power 25 Rankings debut, after going 3-1 last week, as they check in at #16 this week.  The Skippers secured a massive opening night upset win over Central (BR) and also took down defending State Champion St. Charles with their only loss coming at the hands of a talented Archbishop Rummel team.
