The Winters High School Baseball team of 2019 still has honors coming in in July. The Warriors had four of their players honored in the last few weeks by being named to the Calhisports.com Small Schools All-State Baseball team.
In this last season four of the Warriors followed the trend set by last year’s team, when the Warriors led the Division IV state team of the year and CIF Northern Section powerhouse. This year the Warriors were a powerhouse again. WHS had the most honorees this year, as the Warriors had four players named to the All-State team. Calhisports.com Player of the Year and pitcher Daniel Carrion was named to the first team.
Carrion is joined by leading hitter Ruben Valencia. Valencia was also the only Junior from WHS named to the All-State teams.
Catcher Gary Molina and outfielder Atlas Martinez were named to the second All-State team.
In the week prior to Independence Day the CBS Affiliate website Maxpreps.com released their 2019 MaxPreps California Small Schools All-State Baseball team. Two Warriors will hold the honor for the 2019 baseball season of being on the All-State team this year: Pitcher and shortstop Carrion and, again for being the leading hitter and infielder, Valencia.
On Thursday, July 4 Sportstarsmag.com put out their All-NorCal teams. Carrion made the second team for the “All-NorCal” 2019 Baseball Team. Carrion was named a multi-purpose player for a .477 batting average with 40 runs and 40 RBIs. Carrion also had 0.47 ERA in 15 innings pitched.
Carrion was named to the 2019 Small Schools All-American Team from Maxpreps.com as an all-purpose player, for over all excellence in hitting, pitching and fielding the position of shortstop.]]>
