Osiris Johnson (left) from Encinal of Alameda batted .535 and was the 53rd pick in the second round of this year’s MLB Draft. Connor Kokx from Aliso Niguel of Aliso Viejo (right) might be smiling in the photo but he grimmaced a lot this season since it was reported and confirmed that he was hit by a pitch an amazing 20 times in 30 games.

It’s time to start getting really serious about the 37th annual Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball honors, which are now just a few days from the first teams being released. This list of nominees is once again grouped according to CIF sections, but has been updated from Part 1. We thank everyone who contributed information. It is still not too late to send in a nomination or any other information so we get it into our files before sitting down to make selections. This list, however, as well as the all-state underclass teams and our Inside the All-State Baseball Team post will be for Gold Club members only.

Note: Nominations are always welcome and no one has to be a subscriber to see some of our all-state content. Still, we depend on Gold Club memberships to fund the work we do at this time. To join our team today, CLICK HERE.

What We’re Looking For: You can send a nomination with each athlete’s position, year in school, significant statistics. It’s amazing how many people don’t list a position or year in school. 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.

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.

Here are the nominations currently on our board for the various 2018 all-state baseball teams:
