EBAL baseball, softball power rankings as of March 20

EBAL play is slowly getting underway, with this upcoming week starting to see some big games. Don’t be surprised to see a shakeup of this week’s rankings in this space next week.

1. De La Salle (6-1, 1-0): Had one league game so far, a 19-1 hammering of Dublin. This week will bring three EBAL games, including a tough Friday-Saturday pair of games against a sneaky good Dougherty Valley on Friday, followed by a showdown at Foothill on Saturday.

2. California (10-0): Yet to see an EBAL game but will get down to business on Friday with a big time game with San Ramon Valley. Will we see the Jaron Nevarez (SRV) vs. Nic Bronzini (Cal) pitching showdown?

3. Foothill (8-1, 2-0): The Falcons knock off Amador and Monte Vista to open the season. Now has a tough three game stretch this week, starting with Livermore and closing with a loaded Granada team on Friday and De La Salle on Saturday.

4. San Ramon Valley (8-2, 4-0): The Wolves rebounded from their two-game losing streak with three EBAL wins last week. Tough two games this week with Daugherty Valley and California.
