2012

We are proud to present the second annual All-Capitol Team as selected by BaseballSacramento.com.

The 2012 team features an expanded roster of 14 that includes three returnees and 11 new players. Two players have batting averages nearing the .600 stratosphere, and one--a sophomore--had exactly that number to conclude the year. Only regular season statistics compiled from the MaxPreps web site were considered for continuity in evaluating players (i.e. there are no playoff stats).

Bench-stained ball

The team was expanded to include two more pitchers, one of which is a reliever. We also added a designated hitter this season, that going to the lad who ended up in the "Six Hundred Club."

Rowdy Tellez from Elk Grove is our "Player of the Year." You can read about his terrific year at his page.

Nine of the players selected represent Division I and II from the Sac-Joaquin Section North area. Five came from the lower divisions.

Selecting an "all-star" team always presents an immense challenge. We personally watched each of the players selected for this team, and some more than once, in determining the best talent in the area. Additionally, we consulted with area scouts and coaches.

We believe this is a fair representation of the fine talent competing in the high school ranks in the "greater Sacramento area," which extends as far north to Yuba City/Marysville, east to Nevada Union in Grass Valley and Placerville, west to Woodland and south to the Sacramento-San Joaquin border.

Enjoy reading about the 2012 All-Capitol Team.

Note: We're rolling out the players by position, beginning with our Player of the Year. He'll be followed by pitchers on Tuesday, catchers Wednesday, infielders Thursday, outfielders Friday, Designated Hitter and Utility Player on Saturday, and coach and the Reserve Squad on Sunday.

Statistical Criteria

In selecting the players to the All-Capitol Team, only regular season statistics were considered. We did not consider playoff statistics to maintain
an "apples-to-apples" selection criteria.
