Collegiate Baseball’s 2017 HS All-Americans 0

TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2017 Collegiate Baseball High School All-America teams are loaded with outstanding talent from across the nation.

This year’s crop of high school athletes is impressive and talented on both the first and second teams. Twenty two players were selected in the first two rounds and Competitive Balance A and B of the 2017 Major League Draft.

Leading the team is Collegiate Baseball’s National Player of the Year in RHP/SS Tanner Burns of Decatur H.S. (AL).

Named Alabama’s Mr. Baseball and the 6A Player of the Year, Burns did it all for his high school team. He is “one of the hardest working players I have ever coached,” according to his coach Luke Lamm. “He is very level headed and a better person away from the field.”

As a pitcher, he was 10-1 with a 0.88 ERA, 8 complete games, 116 strikeouts, 22 walks in 64 innings.

He hit .467 with 10 doubles, 4 triples, 16 home runs and 46 RBI. He drew 22 walks and struck out just 7 times in 105 at-bats. The 6-foot, 205 pound right-hander signed with Auburn.

Nominations for the All-Americans are submitted by the player’s high school coach and the staff of Collegiate Baseball chooses the honorees.
