Minnesota Statewide
American Legion Baseball
Coaches & Media Poll

(Division 1)

Last Updated: 8/6/07

Each week during the season, 15 respected coaches and analysts of amateur baseball from across the State individually choose their top ten Minnesota American Legion Baseball teams -- ranking the teams, from first through tenth place. Ten points are awarded to a team for a first place vote, nine for a second place vote, and so on, with a tenth place vote earning one point. The votes are tallied by a non-voting third party and forwarded to the Minneapolis/St. Paul newspapers each week for publication, as well as to a number of other newspapers in outstate Minnesota.
