The 2014 All-Metro baseball team is here.
The 2015 All-Metro baseball team is here.
After having two players on the list in 2014 and 2015, Jesuit placed six players on the list this year.
After a lack of success in the play-offs over the last two years (missed in 2014, one and done in the 2015), Jesuit won its first two play-off games this year before losing two close games. Jesuit beat Rocklin by the score of 3 to 2 and Vintage by the score of 4 to 0. Jesuit then lost to Elk Grove by the score of 6 to 5 in eight innings and were eliminated by Woodcreek by the score of 8 to 7.

COACH OF THE YEAR
Jeff Carlson, Elk Grove
After losing several key players to graduation – including brothers Nick and Ty Madrigal, The Bee’s 2015 co-Players of the Year – Carlson retooled, and the Thundering Herd kept winning. Elk Grove beat Tracy to repeat as the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I champion, the seventh title for Carlson since 2003. One bonus to the season, which Carlson called his most special, was coaching sons Dylan, an outfielder-first baseman and The Bee’s Player of the Year, and Tanner, a third baseman.
