As a prelude to the 2020 MLB Draft and to run in conjunction with a couple of feature stories we have coming up on significant California players, here’s as complete a list as possible of high school players and former high school players from the state who have been chosen in the first round of...
It was a situation of competing precedents in this year’s race for the state’s longest-running State Player of the Year honor for baseball, making it one of the most difficult decisions ever in perhaps the most talent-laden season ever for Southern California. In the end, local consensus carries Hagen Danner of Huntington Beach over the […]
Harvard-Westlake has to drop all the way out after playoff loss, which creates room for La Costa Canyon and Stockdale of Bakersfield to go up into this week’s Super 8. Too bad LCC has to play No. 2 Rancho Bernardo right away in San Diego Open Division. NOTE: Our updated State Top 20 with lists […]
No. 1 MLB Draft pick and Mr. Baseball State Player of the Year Mickey Moniak has been selected alongside 29 others in being among this year’s All-State Super Elite first team. This is the 36th straight year of the Cal-Hi Sports all-state teams in baseball, a feat we’re proud to continue from what remains the […]
It became just too hard not to add the Mr. Baseball State Player of the Year selection to a player who was just chosen No. 1 overall in the annual MLB Draft. Of the seven previous No. 1 picks in the draft who were California prep players at the time, all seven also are State […]

Thursday’s MLB Draft will involve most of these elite players in what is shaping up to be a very difficult choice to determine the 2016 Mr. Baseball State Player of the Year. We have cut off the list of this year finalists at seven names. If a player is not a finalist, he can still […]
It’s a wild-and-wacky first of two weeks in which many of the state’s top teams will be playing each other in Easter/Spring Break tournaments. Huntington Beach topped Chaminade in another all-California final at the National High School Invitational while Davis reigned supreme at the Northern California Boras Classic. This week, it’ll be the Southern California...
California’s tremendous depth already showing up with many top teams already with losses, including No. 1 JSerra, which split a pair with preseason No. 1 Huntington Beach on Monday. Wednesday saw two of the best in NorCal collide with De La Salle topping Elk Grove. Note: There are not going to be separate free and...
With just about everyone back from a team that won the CIF Southern Section Division I title, it’s a bit of a no brainer for Huntington Beach to be No. 1 to start the 2016 season in California. The Oilers also were at the top of most preseason national rankings. Orange County also gets the […]
