PHILLY POWER RANKINGS
The Philly Power Rankings are voted on by several local baseball insiders. The rankings are meant to highlight the hottest team in the region, regardless of division classification. 

No. 1: West Chester: The Golden Rams have looked outstanding so far in all facets. Joe Kaleck is on another planet right now, hitting .625 with three homers over three games. 

No. 2: Arcadia: Taking down the No. 1 and No. 3 programs in the nation will put a target on your back. It'll be interesting to see how the Knights and first-year head coach Chuck Thielmann handle the response. The club welcomes a 3-1 Penn State Harrisburg team to Ambler this weekend. 

No. 3: Cabrini: The Cavs have been an offensive machine so far, pushing across 62 runs over six games. The +30 run differential is one of the best in the nation. Five guys in the lineup are hitting .360 or better.
