With the recent release of the California Baseball Coaches’ Association’s 2020 All-Southern Section Senior Baseball Teams, the state selections have now been made and announced. Despite the spring season being cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, the CBCA committee felt it necessary to honor as many nominated seniors as they could. Most area schools are members of the CBCA, which has been in operation since 1986.
“We are continuing to honor the class of 2020 by naming the top seniors in the state of California, as nominated by their coaches. These players truly exemplified their program’s standards and ideals to the All-State Senior Team,” Iran Novick, president of CBCA, said. “Once again, these seniors may or may not have been the team’s best player, but they absolutely took a leadership role in their program whether it was on or off the field.”
The area school’s that made their picks included: Cornerstone Christian – Ben Sweeton; Elsinore – Ford Morris; Fallbrook – Dean Olivo; Great Oak – Jacob Fisher; Heritage – Chaz Myers; Tahquitz – Travis Booth; Temescal Canyon – Jack McClellan; Vista Murrieta – Cayden Castellanos; West Valley – Tyler Simmons.
