If you want to see three of the nation's best high school baseball teams, you need only to take a drive down Flamingo Road from Plantation to Pembroke Pines.
The MaxPreps XCellent 25 national rankings were released Tuesday morning and Archbishop McCarthy (No. 6, 10-1), Flanagan (No. 7, 8-0) and American Heritage (No. 9, 8-1) are all ranked in the Top-10. They lead a list of six Florida schools in the poll.
