All-State Baseball: 2nd & 3rd Teams

Two of those earning second team all-state overall honors for 2019 in baseball are catcher Johnny Tincher from Birmingham of Lake Balboa and pitcher-infielder Zach Meddings from Franklin of Elk Grove. Tincher, the L.A. City Player of the Year, will play next at Washington. He has been a key member of teams that have won three straight L.A. City Section titles. Meddings, who will play next at Nevada, helped Franklin rank near the top of the CIF Sac-Joaquin Section. He batted .376 with four homers plus he went 8-1 on the mound with a 1.54 ERA.

This also makes everyone eligible to purchase an All-State patch through our partners from We wish we could send them all out for free, but there are no sponsors to cover the cost.

There are 1,200 high schools in California and the competition in baseball is second to none.

With that said, congratulations to the following 2019 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball second team members as well as third team:
