Sports in a Minute: Rowley's White ranked No. 1 baseball prospect in Class of 2023 by Perfect Game

Courtesy PhotoRowley's Thomas White, a freshman baseball standout at Phillips Andover, has been ranked the No. 1 player in country for the Class of 2023 by Perfect Game.

White ranked No. 1

Last month we profiled Rowley’s Thomas White, a rising freshman at Phillips Andover who is already considered among the nation’s top baseball prospects. The 6-foot-3, 185-pound lefty can already hit 92 miles per hour on the radar gun, and Thursday afternoon his profile reached new heights as he was ranked as the No. 1 prospect in the nation for the Class of 2023 in Perfect Game’s Top 140 rankings.

“Electric throughout the summer, easy low-90s velocity with excellent life; very easy operation on mound,” White’s bio reads on the rankings.

Electric is an understatement. White is coming off a summer season in which he was the Elite Baseball League’s top pitcher, going 13-2 with a 0.37 ERA and 170 strikeouts over 75.1 innings pitched for the Legends Prospects. He also ranked as one of the league’s top hitters, batting .405 while leading the league in home runs (4), doubles (16, tied for first) and stolen bases (29) while ranking second in hits (70), runs (46) and RBIs (37).

Bean scores two

The Pentucket field hockey team opened its season with a 3-1 win over North Reading on Thursday. Meghan Bean scored twice for the Sachems while Amanda Leinas had a goal and an assist, and Meg Freiermuth and Talia Beech also recorded assists.

Georgetown starts strong

The Georgetown field hockey team beat Amesbury 4-1 to start their season off with a win. Abbie Donahue had two goals and an assist for the Royals, who also got goals from Katie Hermanson and Bella Capillo and an assist from Chloe Sapienza.

O’Connell’s big day

Newburyport golf sophomore Joe O’Connell had the best outing of his career in Thursday’s 147-82 win over Georgetown, recording a career-best 29 points to tie for the top score of the day with teammate Andrew Cullen. Sam Lyman added 25 points for the Clippers, Tyler Cowles had 24 and Declan Sullivan had 21 as Newburyport improved to 2-0 on the season.
