2019 PBR Ohio Elite 25 All-State Team

The 2019 season was my eighth season with PBR Ohio and as with each of the previous seven years, I couldn't ask for a better job. Yeah the weather could be better in March and April, but seeing these kids battle through the conditions that Ohio brings is great.

Being able to finish the season at the home of the Cleveland Indians AA affiliate, the Akron Rubberducks, is a dream that all high school baseball players hope to be able to accomplish. Canal Park is one of the finest AA venues in all of baseball and the OHSAA and Rubberducks organization did an outstanding job running the state Final Four in the first year at the site.

Personally, I want to thank all of the players, coaches, parents, media members and fans who have helped PBR Ohio and myself with coverage across the great state of Ohio.

In 2020, PBR Ohio will continue to be your one-stop spot for high school baseball news in Ohio and will look to bring you even more. Thanks again! Can't wait for the 2020 spring HS season to begin!

For all of you that are playing this summer, have a blast, work hard and use this time to make yourself better. For everyone going to play at the collegiate level, good luck! Represent your family, school and yourself as the best student-athlete you can be. For all that are going to college, going to the military or going straight to a job after high school, I wish you luck in all your future endeavors.
