2013 Preseason High School All-America Team
The 2013 draft class is receiving low marks overall, but the high school side is strong on lefthander pitching and catchers, as evidenced by the All-America Teams. The race for first-team first baseman was a landslide with Dominic Smith (Serra HS, Gardena, Calif.) being the unanimous pick. The only other players to be unanimous first-team selections were outfielders Clint Frazier (Loganville, Ga., High) and Austin Meadows (Grayson HS, Loganville, Ga.). Ballots were sent to all 30 Major League Baseball scouting directors. Lefthander Chris Kohler pitched in a spring league in 2012, but returns to the Los Osos High (Rancho Cucamonga, Calif.) varsity for his senior season. Lefthander/first baseman A.J. Puk is from Iowa, which has a high school season that runs over the summer rather than in the spring.

2012 College All-America Team Capsules
College baseball lacked an individual performance for the ages in 2012—the kind of seasons Stephen Strasburg, Buster Posey and Trevor Bauer had as juniors. Considering the demands of his defensive position, his leadership value and his power production, Florida catcher Mike Zunino had the best all-around season, earning him our College Player of the Year award.

2012 Preseason All-America Team
The 2011 college class was the type that comes around maybe once a decade. It was loaded with quality pitchers, starting with the first three picks in the draft (Gerrit Cole, Danny Hultzen, Trevor Bauer) and a total of 11 first-rounders. Far from one-sided, it had a number of gifted position players, including an elite hitter (Anthony Rendon) and an exceptional athlete (George Springer). That group was the exception that proves the rule: Big league teams usually weaken the college crops by persuading high school players to turn pro rather than continue their educations. The 2012 college draft pool pales in comparison to last year's.
