First group of honorees for the 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball teams is for non-seniors. We have a first team of 30 players and a second team of 20 more.

State Team of the Year Vista and Division II State Team of the Year Campolindo of Moraga might be very good again next season if selections to the 2012 Cal-Hi Sports all-state baseball underclass teams are a barometer.

Both Vista and Campolindo landed three players each among the 50 who were either named first team or second team. Other schools to collect more than one player chosen are Elk Grove, El Toro, Harvard-Westlake, Rancho Bernardo and Willow Glen.

We’re proud once again to collect weekly writeups of the most significant individual high school baseball totals in California. We use these as the basis for updating the state record book, which has been published seven times, most recently in the spring of 2009. To report a state stat star of your own, please email highlights to Mark.Tennis@espn.com.
