Rhett Wiseman of B.B. & N at bat facing Lawrence Academy’s (and Toronto Blue Jays 1st round draft pick) Tyler Beede
High School baseball here in Massachusetts is not as big as it is in warmer parts of the country. It’s hard to be as competitive when you have to play indoors for a good chunk of the year. Despite our colder climate, New England prep schools have been turning out Division I caliber athletes in baseball as well as lacrosse.
Rhett Wiseman of Buckingham, Browne & Nichols, and Max Tishman of Lawrence Academy are I.S.L. baseball rivals, and will certainly continue the tradition next year at the collegiate level. Tishman head to Wake Forest in the fall while Wiseman is off to Vandy. Both players may be drafted in this year’s MLB draft.
