The 35th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams package for baseball also includes 30 players named second team overall plus 50 more who are third team. The third team, however, is only for seniors and only for large schools.

Note: We’ll have an inside look at this year’s all-state baseball teams after all of the teams are chosen, including names of players we really wanted to pick but couldn’t. That post plus a brand new archive of all-state first team picks back to 1990 (which also has been added to the site today) is for Gold Club members only. Several in the archive will be in this year’s MLB All-Star Game. To join our team today, CLICK HERE.

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 all-state 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 several 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 2015 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball second team members as well as third team:
