High school baseball: 2013 Deseret News MVPs willed their teams to wins

Published: Friday, June 7 2013 4:34 p.m. MDT

What exactly is the most important thing an athlete can provide for their team?

While publicity, second-glance statistics and good looks (well, maybe) can all be nice, the answer to that question is obvious: winning.

In 2013, the Deseret News baseball MVPs worried about what was most important — helping their teams win — and let everything else follow.

Throughout March and into May, Bingham’s Chase Tavonatti, Salem Hills’ Colton Hill, Snow Canyon’s Riley Gates and Beaver’s Sam Myers repeatedly delivered. Collectively, the four players' teams won 81 percent of their games with a combined record of 89-21, and as a result, they have been named the MVPs of their classifications.

Great job little brother! Let me tell you, he's as good a person as he is a baseball player. This big sis is proud as punch :)

Sam is an awesome young man. He has put in the time that is for sure. Always on a team in Salt Lake or playing in some other state. There is one thing Sam doesn't do well at is fishing, and he will now know who this is. When you see young men like Sam, you know that this is the strongest generation ever.
