Here is an updated, second list of nominees who are going to be considered for one or more of the 38th annual Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams. Thanks to everyone who sent in a nomination for their favorite player (either already on the first list or just added to this second one). Nominations are not closed, but we will have limited access to the site during a long-planned vacation that starts this week. Still, the goal is not to miss anyone from anywhere in the state who should be in the mix. The first of our all-state baseball teams will be released near the July 4th holiday.
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. Some players listed may have switched schools from last year or were injured and didn’t play this season because one of our first moves is to transfer players listed as nominees from last season. This 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: firstname.lastname@example.org 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 small schools and medium schools teams. 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 2019 all-state baseball teams:
