I just went over the nominations I’ve received so far for the Daily Journal’s All-Area baseball and fast-pitch softball teams. I have received nominations from 13 baseball coaches and seven softball coaches. The deadline for submissions: FRIDAY!!!
That means a lot people out there need to get on the ball. You know who you are. Just send me your nominations and include each player’s class, position, all stats (and I mean all of them), and postseason honors. E-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org, or fax to 842-2233. Again, the deadline is FRIDAY!!!
That’s in three days. That’s plenty of time, especially with school out, and much thanks to the coaches who have already sent theirs in.
There will be three teams selected in each sport, along with players and coaches of the year. I’ve already picked our top coach and player in baseball (you can guess, but I’m not telling), and I’m pretty close on the softball. That’s the easy part. The hard part is picking the teams, specifically the second and third teams. The first team usually picks itself; any dolt could do it (which I’m sure leaves some of you critics grasping for ways to explain my basketball All-Area teams; keep grasping, I enjoy watching it).
So all you fans out there, nag your coach until he or she sends in those nominations. Because, you know, the deadline is FRIDAY!!!
