18. HUNTINGTON BEACH
Location: Huntington Beach, Calif.
2018 record: 26-6
Final 2018 Super 25 rank: Unranked
Huntington Beach has a deep, deep team that’s bolstered by two transfers and five left-handed pitchers.
There are two UCLA commits, senior Josh Hahn (LHP/1B, No. 124 in country) and junior Jake Vogel (OF, No. 129 in country). The Oilers have a third top-200 player in outfielder Shane Stafford, who’s still a sophomore but is committed to San Diego State. Jag Burden, a junior OF/1B/LHP, is a Cal commit who is No. 296 in the country and No. 48 in the state. Then there are three more top-500 players in San Diego commit Edward Pelc, Stanford commit Brett Barrera (transfer) and Gonzaga commit Cole Minato.
With a full cast and one final year of Hahn, Huntington Beach can once again fight for that 30-win mark that has just barely eluded them the last two years.
