2016 ABCA/Rawlings High School All-Region Teams

The American Baseball Coaches Association has released the 2016 ABCA/Rawlings High School All-Region teams. The eight teams are voted on by members of the American Baseball Coaches Association and the process is led by the ABCA High School All-America Committee.

The ABCA/Rawlings All-Region teams include scores of student-athletes who are moving on to all levels of college baseball and many who were drafted by Major League teams this year. Fourteen All-Region selections were taken in the first round of the Major League Draft, including No. 1 overall pick Mickey Moniak (outfielder) of La Costa Canyon High School in California, who was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies. Pitchers Ian Anderson (Shenendehowa/Clifton Park, NY), Riley Pint (St. Thomas Aquinas/Overland Park, KS) and Braxton Garrett (Florence/Florence, AL) were also taken in the top 10. Anderson was taken third overall by the Atlanta Braves, Pint was taken fourth overall by the Colorado Rockies and Garrett was taken seventh overall by the Miami Marlins.

All-Region first-team selections are eligible for ABCA/Rawlings All-America honors. ABCA/Rawlings All-Americans and the ABCA/Rawlings Gold Glove Team will be announced on Thursday, June 22.

The ABCA/Rawlings High School All-America team was first recognized in 1969 and a full archive is available at abca.org/awards/all-americans. The ABCA All-America committee is chaired by Jack Thomson of Sierra High School in Manteca, California. The other seven committee members are Scott Steltz of Chatham High School (N.Y.), Michael Hogan of Ferris High School (N.J.), Jim Cahill of North Forsyth High School (Georgia), Tim Saunders of Dublin Coffman High School (Ohio), Bill McDonald of Blue Valley West High School (Kansas), Jimmy Harris of Stillwater High School (Oklahoma) and Jerry Hollow of Capital High School (Idaho).

The ABCA, founded in 1945, is the primary professional organization for baseball coaches at the amateur level. Its over 8,200 members represent all 50 states and 23 countries. Since its initial meeting of 27 college baseball coaches in June 1945, Association membership has broadened to include eight divisions: NCAA Division I, II and III, NAIA, NJCAA, Pacific Association Division, High School and Youth. The 73rd annual ABCA Convention will be held Jan. 5-8, 2017 in Anaheim, California.
