Baseball: Vote for the 2023 LebCo Spring All-Stars!

While the high school Baseball season has long been complete, we want to go back and give recognition to some of LebCo’s top performers during the season.  There were many of them.  We attempted to narrow down the field by selecting the top hitter and the top pitcher from each team.  In almost every case, this was a very difficult process.  In all but one school’s case, a different player chosen as the top pitcher and top offensive player.

Now, we need your help in determining who deserves to be named the Pitcher of the Year and the Player of the Year based on their outstanding performances during the Spring season.

It is very important to note that while voting is involved, the main purpose is to draw attention to the hardworking athletes that competed for LebCo’s high schools this past season.  We also recognize that there may be other good possible selections who did not make the list, but we limited it to one per school, per category.


Read about the accolades of the nominated athletes from each school, then go vote!
