TCPalm: Baseball rankings: See who TCPalm has on top at midseason

“3. John Carroll Catholic (10-7, No. 118 in FHSAA, No. 11 in 2A)

As usual, the Rams have played one of the area’s toughest schedules and have shown they can beat the best as they are responsible for Benjamin’s only loss this season.

Playing a mix of local opponents, Florida teams and out-of-state teams, John Carroll already has played 17 games and doesn’t have as busy a schedule as most down the stretch.

Big games do loom against the likes of Delray Beach American Heritage, Don Bosco Prep from New Jersey, Treasure Coast, Westminster Academy and Jensen Beach for the Rams.

FIU signee Tracen Cameron has been excellent at the plate (.417, 12 RBI, 4 2B, 3 3B) and on the mound (0.75 ERA, 18⅔ IP, 33 K), senior Anthony Ferraro (.380, 15 RBI, eight extra-base hits), senior Jake Rychter (.356, 13 RBI, 6 2B), freshman Grady Messner (.359, 5 RBI) and junior Taggert Cameron (.353, 14 RBI) all have shined at the plate.”
