Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be putting together our annual #lohudbaseball all-star teams, as well as submitting my nominations for the All-State team. But in a new twist this year, we’re also going to be printing a separate all-star team that is selected entirely by YOU, the fans.
What I’ve done is narrow down lists of players by position for you to consider. It’s a combination of players who made the All-Section team and those who impressed me based on the eye test. If you feel that I’m missing anyone, you can write-in a name or leave it in the comments section. We’ll start with Westchester/Putnam this week and then do more polls for Rockland next week.
Obviously, doing a poll turns it into somewhat of a popularity contest, but I’m hoping that most of you will try to be objective and vote based on who you think is truly deserving. We’ll take one catcher, four infielders, three outfielders and five pitchers, then I’ll fill out the two utility spots based on which remaining players received the most votes. I also have some difficult decisions to make about our player of the year and coach of the year awards, so feel free to chime in on that.
Now go rock the vote!
