All-State Baseball Nominees (Part 1)

Darren Baker from Jesuit of Carmichael already has gained All-Metro honors from the Sacramento Bee and will play next at Cal. His father, Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker, recently took a couple of days away from the Nationals to attend Jesuit’s graduation. Photo: James K. Leash/SportStars.

It’s hard to believe, but this will be the 36th year of Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball teams. The first step is for us to list the names of those already on our board. It’s not meant to be all-inclusive and we know we may have missed a few players who’ve transferred or are listing someone who was injured and didn’t play. Just let us know what is incorrect or to provide information on a deserving player who should be added. There will be an updated list posted for Gold Club members that will be the one we’ll be working off of toward final selections of the various teams.

Note: This list is compiled so that coaches, parents and readers can submit additions, corrections and make comments about which players should be selected when all information is received. Nominations are always welcome. This list will be updated and posted one more time prior to the teams being finalized. The second list and additional all-state baseball content will be for Gold Club members only. Join our team today by CLICKING HERE.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s position, year in school, significant statistics. Comparing a player not on the board yet to one who already is can be very important toward eventual selection. Limit each nomination to one page please. Send to: or call/text (209) 608-1317.

Also, be aware that not all freshmen, sophomores or juniors we are considering for all-state underclass may be on this list. We also normally wind up choosing players who aren’t on this list for some of the smaller CIF divisions as well. These players will come to light when all of the various major newspaper-based honor squads are released.

Format: Thirty players will be chosen all-state overall first team with 30 more on second team plus additional lists. Each of the first 30 players are written up. There also are 30 players each for large schools, medium schools and small schools. The all-state underclass team will consist of juniors, sophomores and freshmen mixed together.

Pitchers Who Hit, Hitters Who Pitch: We have had as many as nine players listed as multi-purpose on the various all-state baseball teams over the years. For this reason, it is very important to identify those pitchers who have hitting statistics or those hitters who have pitched. Please indicate in any nomination which positions a player played.

Info For Players Already On The List: Don’t assume we know all there is to know about a player on the list, either. Send us a nomination to make sure all facts are turned in and placed into our files.

Here are the nominations currently on our board for the various 2017 all-state baseball teams:
