Big Apple Power Rankings- Preseason

03/29/2017 12:22 PM -

After much anticipation, Borough Cup TV is proud to present our first edition of the “Big Apple Power Rankings.” The standings are based on accomplishments, strength of schedule, coach’s feedback, and first-hand accounts by tournaments staff.

“We are so excited to finally release this,” said Borough Cup Director Zachary Bright. “The response we have received from the NYC Baseball Community has been amazing, and we can’t wait to continue this coverage all season long.”

As is the case with any new project, Bright was quick to acknowledge that the rankings would continue to improve with time. “Since many leagues’ information is not available yet, we were only able to include teams that we could confirm are playing in 2017,” said Bright.  “We are confident that as play begins, this list will continue to grow and become definitive overall standings for the five boroughs.
