Presented by the LA84 Foundation, the CIF Southern Section is excited to announce the selections for the 2024 All-CIF boys’ and girls’ spring sports teams. This week, we are proud to recognize the outstanding achievements of local high school baseball athletes who have excelled across various divisions.

The All-CIF First Team selections, chosen by the CIF Southern Section Baseball Coaches, were announced last week and this year’s awards recognize only First Team selections. There are no recognized Second Team selections, which are typically chosen by individual school coaches.
