College Baseball: 2011 Preseason All-American Teams


A new year is upon us and that means we’re one step closer to baseball season. I spent New Year’s Eve much like the rest of you; watching the Twilight Zone Marathon, drinking some smoked porter that my buddy made in his basement and working on my Preseason Collegiate All-American teams. Well here is the end result of that wacky crazy night. Keep in mind that most of these kids I’ve only seen on TV while others I haven’t seen at all. It should also be noted that I tend to favor higher ceiling guys than strictly numbers guys although I tried to find a balance between those guys that have already produced gargantuan numbers and those who I feel are capable of doing so. Well enough of this palaver, let’s get this show on the road.
