Some ins and outs of this week's Globe Top 20 baseball rankings:
- Sizzling Lawrence holds onto the top spot, cementing an unchanged Top 5 that features two teams (Oliver Ames and Masconomet) making a serious run at undefeated seasons.
- Bridgewater-Raynham makes it back into the Top 10 behind some stellar pitching by Eddie Campbell and Mike Connolly.
- St. John's Prep is the second of four new teams in the Top 20. The Eagles' list of victims is undeniably impressive.
- Lexington has taken advatage of Reading's freefall (which has coincided with a brutal Plymouth North skid) to rise up to 13th. Will Marcal (six home runs, 32 RBIs, 6-0) has been a on a tear at the plate and on the mound.
Have at it!
Several reporters and editors contribute updates, news and analysis to the High School Sports Blog.
- Bob Holmes: A Reading resident (Go Rockets!) and Boston College graduate, Holmes is the Boston Globe High School Sports Editor. We remind you now that his weekly picks are often made in jest so everyone just calm down when he picks against Everett for 11 straight weeks. Contact him at email@example.com. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeHolmes.
- Craig Larson: A native of West Springfield (Leo Durocher anyone? Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat. Abington to Xaverian: it all starts with the schools. Have a compelling story idea? Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow him on Twitter @GlobeLars.
- Zuri Berry: Berry attended the same high school as sports legends O.J. Simpson and Joe DiMaggio. (Guess which one is his hero.) He's a South Boston resident (formerly of Eastie) and the editor of the High School Sports blog as well as the go-to-guy for everything high school sports on Boston.com. Contact him at email@example.com and follow him on Twitter @GlobeSchools for all of the latest updates.
