Softball all-state selections don’t go back as many years as they do for other sports, but we do have a school with 23 all-state softball selections since 2003 and that’s Norco. The only schools close are both from Orange County — Mater Dei (Santa Ana) and Pacifica (Garden Grove). Pacifica actually has the same number […]
With the MLB playoffs coming to a close, we’re matching a previous project for boys and girls basketball in counting up schools with the most all-state first team honorees in baseball. We’ve got these teams going back to 1980, just in time to get a promising outfielder from Serra of San Mateo chosen twice. The […]
This is the third time we’ve done these all-time rankings. The last posting was in 2015. Fresno 1958 and Chatsworth 2004 remain in the top two positions and have to be among the two greatest ever in U.S. history. The big change for the top 10 is the insertion of Clovis Buchanan’s 30-1 team from...
As a consequence of the 2020 high school baseball and softball seasons being canceled after not even one-third of scheduled games were played in the state, we cannot produce all-state teams in those sports for 2020. We do not want to forget about those seniors from the Class of 2020, however, who were going to […]
As is another of our traditions, we have a final & expanded version of rankings for California’s best softball teams at the close of the season. That unfortunately became official last Friday with spring sports cancelled for the duration of the school year due to the Coronavirus. How hard is it to rank some teams...
There are not as many changes to this week’s new State Top 25 in softball, but like baseball we also wanted to wait until hearing what the CIF and its sections might do for spring championships on Tuesday before releasing these rankings. These are not final, and even if at a later date the CIF...
We don’t have a 128-123 game to go through, but we also have compiled our first divisional state rankings for the girls teams through Thursday’s regional quarterfinals. The big move is Long Beach Poly having to go in front of previous state No. 2 Mater Dei for a big win from Wednesday in the Open […]
We’ll have a separate post coming on Friday containing the actual all-decade all-state baseball teams for the 2010s, but for this first announcement we’re taking care of the major awards: State Player of the Decade, State Coach of the Decade, State Team of the Decade and State Game of the Decade. Clovis schools have captured […]
All of our exclusive state coaching record lists in football, boys hoops, girls hoops, baseball and softball have now been updated through the 2018-19 school year now that we have completed the updates for baseball and softball. Here is a recap of the major milestones from some of the greatest baseball and softball coaches in […]
Great players abound historically from all corners of California, which makes the annual selections for the Cal-Hi Sports All-State Baseball Teams that much more difficult. This year’s 38th annual edition of this elite 30-player team happens to include one from the CIF Northern Section and one from the CIF Oakland Section. We also have the […]
