If you click on the pic to the left it will direct you to the Max Preps 2018 Preseason All-American Team. First off I would like to congratulate every single player on the list. Your inclusion illustrates the immense dedication to your sport as well as the personal sacrifices you have made on your way to the top. Every player , parent and coach in America should look upon this list as the standard of what we are trying to achieve in our sport. However, the individuals on the list are not the real purpose of my post.
Mindful of a previous post regarding the importance of hitting, something struck me. Reading through I noticed Pitchers were predominantly featured first, naturally all of their pitching accomplishments were featured. The list was then rounded out by Catchers, Infielders, Outfielders and Utility Players. Noticeably similar to the layout I featured in my post " Can't Sit... If You Hit..." Digging down deeper into the list I noticed that all of the categories following pitchers, exclusively featured the players hitting accomplishments. Hardly any mention of defensive accomplishment at all.
Just a little more evidence to support the theory "Can't Sit...If You Hit..." Yes grab your bat and get some T work in now..
