  • Baseball Fan said,

    Congratulations to the kids that made it they deserve to be there, but one question how did three kids from the Mid-State 3A make it and not the “Player Of The Year” and “The Pitcher Of The Year” in Mid-State 3A not make it. Andy how do you get voted on for the All State team?

  • fan said,

    the coaches that vote have to pay money to be a member of the organization. it’s a bunch of crap. i mean some teams had 3 members of the allstate team. It’s a joke.

  • Andy Durham said,

    First of all we ask you not to mention someone else’s name unless they have left their name here in a comment…

    The Coaches that are members of the association would be voting on the players that make the All-State Team is my assumption and the process would be similar to that of what they do with All-Conference in that you can nominate your players from your team, but you can’t vote for your own players…..You would have a certain number of votes to vote for players from the other teams and you would have to be a voting member to vote…

    We see a number of different All-State Teams and congrats to those who made this one if your players didn’t make it this time around, get with your coaches and do something about it in the future….

    Randleman had three players on the team, they finished second in the state and were well thought of around the state in the 2-A ranks…

    Many times these things do get a bit political, but you have to get political enough with to survive and keep on going, if that is what you choose to do….

  • drob1211 said,

    Let me start by saying I am happy for ALL those that made All State I believe all are deserving. But from what I’ve been told each coach has to pay a fee to be apart or to even have a chance to nominate and vote. I don’t agree with the process but it IS the coaches or AD’s responsibility to take care of this. I will never understand how POY’s in a conference cannot make All State and others in that same conference can. Andy you said there were other ALL State teams can you tell me how to find these

  • Andy Durham said,

    The AP always has an All-State team and it has to be out there somewhere and we will do some looking…

  • drob1211 said,

    thanks Andy!! There has to be a better way for this process. The one here is only for the ones whose coaches will take the time to get it done right for their players. In the end the kids are the ones who get the punished or left off after a ton of hard work and good play have been put in

  • Mike said,

    Danny,

    Do you actually think the coach at EG cares? Cmon man, wake up. He rolls the balls out in February and says let’s play. Can’t be mad othet players in your conference make it and your boys did not because your coach has not a clue. Just my opinion!

  • Baseball Fan said,

    I don’t think anyone is mad because of any of the kids that made the team, all the kids that made it deserve to be there and worked very hard to get there. The problem is coaches that are there like you said just for the season and you don’t see or hear from them as soon as the season is over. If I was a coach why wouldn’t I want my players to be rewarded for their accomplishments. At the Colt championship game Sunday there was several coaches that had came to watch their players from the high school season and a lot of the coaches can be spotted thru out the season in the stands watching their players but there are the few that you never see, that would have been find 20 years ago but to be successful now you just about need to been in your sport year round.

  • Drob1211 said,

    @Mike I am not upset or mad because those kids made it as I said all kids are deserving. I was just trying to point out the system is flawed in my opinion. If you are a POY they should be automatic. Just my opinion and my opinion won’t get you much lol.

  • Interesting said,

    Wow! when all players are not eligible it sort of takes some of the shine off of the accomplishment. but it is the NC Coaches Association team so I can see where they would require coaches doing the nominating and voting to be members. one question I have is why would a varsity baseball coach at a 3-A school not be a member. seems as though several of our local schools are members – just look at the amount of local representation. but I do agree, POY in your conference and not even honorable mention on an All-State team – stupid! common sense would be for all first team all-conference players and all POY’s to be automatically on the ballot whether their school or coach is a member or not. but that would be too simple…

  • drob1211 said,

    @interesting I agree with the statement that first team All Conference and especially POY’s should be auto bids. My thinking is if the conference POY’s which were voted on by all the coaches in that conference and those coaches are the ones that know these players best so if they see those players to be worthy of POY’s out of that conference then to me those not only should be auto nominated but I feel they should be automatically on that team and from what I have heard recently that in the past that POY’s were automatic All State but for some reason that changed this year. I do not want to discredit any young man on that list they too deserved it or they wouldn’t have been voted on

  • Mid-State said,

    The two best players I saw in high school baseball this year was Luke Robinson and the Brown kid from Northeast. Who runs these selections?

  • Mike said,

    @Mid State, no doubt the 2 players you mentioned are good players but how may games are you going to?
    IMO POY should not be automatic All State, they should look at the conference they playing in, strength of schedule and what the player did against better teams.
    Get to a few more gamea Mid State.
