Legacy & Legends Softball 2028 Elite Player Rankings: Jayde Palmer Ranked #1 Overall Top Prospect

Updated: Nov 30, 2022

Chief of Evaluations Approved November 1, 2022

Jayde Palmer - 2028; SS/C; TN Mojo Fastpitch Organization

Today we announce the Legacy & Legends Softball Top Players for the 2028 Class for the 2022 Calendar Year. The 2028 group is still very young and due to limited video available, lack of social media profiles, and different levels of competition this year group plays within, the rankings are based primarily on overall performance (playing-up is a positive consideration) validated by coaches, Tier 1 tournament results, elite potential, and character.

However, most selected on this prestigious list are playing up at even high levels of 16U and some at 18U. Albeit they may be young in age, their on the field performance and character off the field have demonstrated that they (and their family and teams) are worthy of being recognized and rewarded for their above and beyond efforts.

Those selected have displayed extraordinary skills and/or a high-level of potential. We congratulate all nominees and those selected as the nationally elite and "best of the best" on their outstanding achievements.

Unfortunately, we couldn't add everyone to our list that was nominated or referred for ranking. We hope those will use this as motivation to continue trying and join this group during the next ranking panel.

According to several reports, over 75,000 per year group play competitive softball. To simply be nominated is an honor in itself. To have laudatory and praiseworthy information available for review indicates a high level of value placed upon you by those who care. Again, congratulations to all who were honored as the best of the 2028 Class for the 2022 Calendar Year.

Board/Panel Notes: Only players who had a package submitted or had material provided by a travel ball coach (opposing or own coach) via direct communications with L&LS were eligible for our rankings. Lack of quality video/profile-social media link is the biggest limiting factor for a nominee's score not being higher. The L&LS Chief of Evaluations may conduct a review of the unranked players who have tagged us in numerous posts, showing quality video along with achievements and supplemental rank those players as ties with other players. If you nominated a player who is not listed and believe they should be, please direct message us via Twitter to discuss.
