With the 2020 spring sports season being canceled in California due to COVID-19, Scorebook Live still plans to cover baseball, boys volleyball, softball and track and field to highlight the top performers coming into the season in each sport.

We’re starting with baseball. The top 50 baseball players in the Southern Section are listed below. The list was compiled by Scorebook Live California reporter Connor Morrissette. He used Prep Baseball Report’s player rankings as a guide as well as his own experiences covering games from past seasons to compile the top 50. The list is in alphabetical order.

(To nominate a player who didn’t make the list or to submit a photo, please email connor@scorebooklive.com)
