Class Of 2018: You're On The Clock!

Orlando Ramirez/USA TODAY Jasmine Sievers Cruisers

It's been a long time since we've updated the Hot 100 list for the 2018 class -- it was first released in April, 2015 -- and a lot has changed since then as we've had two summers of club play to watch and evaluate these players.

One thing has held true still a year and a half later: this class is very strong with frontline pitching with standouts like Brooke Vestal (Firecrackers-Rico, Oklahoma), Megan Faraimo (Corona Angels, UCLA), and Montana Fouts (Beverly Bandits, Alabama), just to name a few.

The question will be, "Who else has emerged or seen their stock rise (or fall) since then?"

FloSoftball has done eight years of Hot 100 player lists -- from the class of 2014 through 2020 and the 2021!
