POWERADE baseball rankings: Week 9

It was a fairly quiet week in Massachusetts baseball, as most of the top teams in the POWERADE state rankings enjoyed first-round byes in the MIAA tournament.

No. 1 St. John's (Shrewsbury) and No. 2 Springfield Cathedral were among the inactive teams, but they'll have to knock off the rust quickly as their playoff schedules resume this week.
