2014 High School All-Americans

Louisville Slugger Honors Amazing Athletes

Cody Reed National HS Player of Yr 2014The 2014 Louisville Slugger High School All-America team is loaded with amazingly talented players from across the nation.

This year’s team features 29 players who were chosen in the first two rounds and the competitive balance rounds of the Major League First-Year Baseball Draft.

Of particular note are the First Team pitchers, who feature two players who reached 100 mph with their fastballs, another who was close to breaking a national record in consecutive scoreless innings, another who set a new record for striking out consecutive batters and one who struck out 226 batters this season.

In addition, several First Team position players cranked up the power with their bats to help propel their teams into the state playoffs this season, including one who set a career record for home runs, one who hit 19 homers for the season and one with 24 doubles.

Leading the list this year is LHP Cody Reed of Ardmore HS (AL), who is the 2014 Louisville Slugger High School Pitcher of the Year, and catcher Chase Vallot of St. Thomas More HS (Lafayette, LA), who is the 2014 Louisville Slugger High School Player of the Year.

Reed stands out this season after striking out a whopping 226 batters in 92 innings, according to his coach Andrew Smith. The Vanderbilt signee posted a 10-2 record with a 0.46 ERA and walked only 16 batters. He gave up just 10 runs and only six were earned. He had three games where he struck out 19, one with 20 and one with 21. His fastball touches 95 mph.

He also can hit and batted .484 with 12 doubles, 6 home runs, 42 runs and 36 RBI. Reed was a second round pick by the Diamondbacks in the recent draft.

PrintVallot led his team to the Louisiana 4A state championship this season. The Mississippi State signee hit .545 with 15 doubles, one triple, 13 home runs and 62 RBI. He scored 45 runs. The 6-foot, 205 pound catcher was chosen in the Competitive Balance Round A in the draft by the Royals.

This is the 18th year Louisville Slugger has sponsored the High School All-America teams. Players are nominated by their high school coach and the staff of Collegiate Baseball selects the team.

(Please note that not all statistics listed are final for the season. Some teams were still finishing their seasons at the time the All-Americans were selected.)
