Initial Class of 2026 Player Rankings (November)

The 2026 recruiting class is loaded with talented players. We have seen a number of 2026 graduates and expect to see a bunch more as we roll into the winter and spring.

Below we will take a look at “Who's At The Top”, "Players To Keep An Eye On", and "The Sleepers".

Covering six states, New England is a prime area for legit baseball talent and now we would like to bring to you the 2026 Player Rankings.

WHO’S AT THE TOP?

The class of 2026 is loaded with players as we had a chance to see a ton of them this past August. We look forward to watching this group evolve and develop on the diamond.

  • Quincy Bright, is the top ranked player in New England. The left-handed pitcher/outfielder is already committed to SEC powerhouse, Mississippi State. Freaky athleticism and stuff.
  • Bradley McCafferty is the 2nd ranked player in New England and just recently put out a verbal to Duke. Bradley can do a multitude of things on the field, catch, pitch and play middle infield.
  • Dennis Martin, is a big and physical right-handed pitcher/corner infielder. His best days are in front of him. He is ranked 3rd. 
  • James Gibbons, a young right-hander shows promise, feel and projection on the mound. He sits at 4th in the rankings.
  • Jack Murray, is a legit left-handed hitting middle infielder. He sits at 5th in the rankings.

Players To Keep An Eye On

We have a bunch of players that deserve to be followed, and the nine listed below are included in that group.

  • Eric Willi, right-handed hitting catcher. Shows very good life in the bat from the right-side.
  • Brayden Edwards showed well, left-handed hitter and left-handed arm is an impressive one. 
  • Vincent Lombardo, a legit hitter, the right-handed hitting outfielder put on a show at Junior Futures, he’s advanced at the plate.
  • Amato Civitello, quick twitch and high baseball IQ player. He was super impressive this past fall.
  • Jamir Liranzo, excellent athlete to follow on the diamond.
  • Mason Crain, is a middle infielder who possesses an advanced skills set.
  • Morrie Fried, is a good looking corner infielder that swings the bat with authority.
  • Jackson Almeida, showed very well with us this past summer, bright future behind the dish.
  • Ryan Ventrelle, a left-handed hitter, went to the Junior Future Games with Team Nevada, looks to be super athletic and can swing it from the left side.

THE SLEEPERS

We  expect the following players to make significant jumps and find themselves in the rankings in the coming years. As you can imagine, the rankings are ever evolving and changing with the player development piece.

  • William Trach is a good looking arm and hitter from the right-side. 
  • Jayden Ortiz, athletic player who should make significant strides to his game in the coming year.
  • Lucas Tanous, shows serious promise in his game behind the dish.
  • Mason Broomfield, right-handed hitter displayed serious juice and feel during our event.
  • Hunter Brasier had a great event with us this summer and possesses an above average skill set.
  • Desmond Powers, is a long and lengthy left-handed hitter, leverage to the swing, and has been up to 79 mph off the bump.
  • Carson Dodder, can defend at a very high level.
  • Rocco DeMaio plays like he's on fire, plus runner and swings it.
