Los Angeles, Calif. - Each week during the high school season we will announce the SoCal Pitcher and Player of the Week covering the action from the previous week. Numerous players across the state continue to put up impressive numbers both as position players and pitchers on the mound. This year we will be selecting one Pitcher of the Week and one Player of the Week based on recommendations from high school coaches from Southern California. 

Continuing from previous seasons, we will also be highlighting others players from across the state in our Prep Baseball California Diamond Notes that will be released weekly. Our Diamond Notes will highlight other players nominated by high school coaches that are deserving of recognition that were not named Pitcher of Player of the Week. 


Senior righthander Cade Townsend from Santa Margarita Catholic faced down the talented lineup of the JSerra Catholic Lions and spun an absolute gem with a complete game shutout. In the shutout Townsend allowed only 3 baserunners for the Lions 2 coming by way of hit and 1 by way of a walk. For the exclamation mark on a standout performance Townsend punched out 14 hitters to ear the SoCal Pitcher of the Week honor.


Senior C Josh Springer of Corona High School helped the Panthers win the NHSI National Championship by way of his stellar defense work, but even more importantly with his offensive performance. Another Oregon Duck commit Springer was 5-13 going up against some the best teams from around the US. In addition to those 5 hits Springer drew a walk, while scoring 2 runs and his 2 RBIs were massive in helping the Panthers go undefeated and come home with the trophy to earn himself SoCal Player of the Week.
