The California Baseball Coaches’ Association recently put the word out to its members that they would be seeking nominations for their 2020 All-Southern Section Senior Baseball Teams. Despite the spring season being cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, the CBCA committee felt it necessary to honor nominated seniors. Most area schools are members of the CBCA, which has been in operation since 1986.
“We want to honor the class of 2020 by naming one senior from every high school in the state that best exemplified their program’s standards and ideals to the All-State Senior Team,” CBCA President Iran Novick said. “The senior may or may not have been the team’s best player. What we were seeking is someone who took a leadership role in their program whether it was on or off the field.”
The area school’s that made their picks included:
Division 1: Caden Szuba – Temescal Canyon; Cayden Castellanos – Vista Murrieta
Division 2: Ethan Wayer – Great Oak; Ethan Strawbridge – Tahquitz
Division 4: Kenny Teter – Heritage; Marty Munoz – Citrus Hill
Division 6: Brandon Baker – Calvary Murrieta; Mitchell Simon – Linfield Christian; Stephon Heron – Santa Rosa Academy; Tyler Simmons – West Valley
Nominations for the CBCA All-State Seniors are being taken now. For more information visit their website at https://www.calbca.com.
