The 34th annual all-state teams package for baseball also includes 30 players named second team overall plus 35 more who are third team. The third team, however, is only for seniors and only for large schools.

If you are chosen to any of the Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams, you should consider yourself an “all-state” player. Whether it’s first team overall, second team overall, third team, underclass, medium schools or small schools, to be on any of these teams should be considered an honor.

There are 1,200 high schools in California and just about any place you go the competition in baseball is great. That’s why California dwarfs all other states – and any other nation – for most players in the major leagues, most College World Series champions and just about any other metric you can find.

We try to research and collect info from everywhere we can and we give people two weeks to send in nominations. Still, it’s not a perfect system so of course it’s possible to miss on a deserving player.

With that said, congratulations to the following 2014 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball second team members as well as third team:
