2012 Louisville Slugger H.S. All-American Team

TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2012 Louisville Slugger High School All-American team is loaded with amazing athletic achievements from elite baseball players across the USA.

Heading the list are RHP Lance McCullers of Jesuit H.S. (Tampa, FL) and 3B Joey Gallo of Bishop Gorman H.S. (Las Vegas, NV) who are the 2012 Louisville Slugger National High School Pitcher and Player of the Year.

McCullers, a first round pick by the Astros who signed with the University of Florida, helped lead Jesuit H.S. to the semi-finals in the Florida state high school tournament this year.

During regular season play, he did not give up an earned run as he finished his senior year with a 12-0 record, 0.11 ERA, 6 complete games and 120 strikeouts with 21 walks in 65 1/3 innings.

Gallo has been one of the premier players in the country. In 2011, he set several offensive records while belting 25 home runs and recording 78 RBI. This year he hit 21 home runs and had 80 RBI along with a .509 batting average and 66 runs scored.

He helped lead his high school to its seventh consecutive state championship with also landed Bishop Gorman in the national high school baseball record books, putting the Gaels at fourth place for most consecutive state championship. 

Gallo also has pitched during his high school career, recording 10 wins in 2011. But, this season he was used sparingly posting a 1.85 ERA with 17 strikeouts in 11.1 innings. He was drafted in the first round by the Rangers.

This year’s Louisville Slugger team features 31 players who were chosen in the first four rounds of the Major League First-Year Baseball Draft. Players on the All-American team were nominated by their high school coach.

For the 16th year Louisville Slugger is sponsoring the High School All-America teams. The staff of Collegiate Baseball selects the team.
