All-State Baseball: Medium, Small
By Mark Tennis
Josh Miguel stood out in football and baseball at Escalon for three seasons.
The second set of honors for the 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball teams is for players from medium schools and small schools.
Before the overall top 30 is named for the 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball honors, we follow up the underclassmen with those from medium schools and small schools.
Players from teams that were considered for the Division IV and Division V state rankings are small schools. Those from teams that were in the Division III state rankings would be medium schools.
