Here's a team-by-team look at the upcoming 2017 high school baseball season and what to expect in Class 2A. With the 2017 high school baseball season getting underway this week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 2A team in the state with information on what to expect this season. The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team. There are four new head baseball coaches in 2A this year: Josh Robinson (North Sevier), Shawn Alton (Emery), Mike Jarman (Wasatch Academy) and McKenon Estrada (Rowland Hall). Here's a region-by-region look at all 24 teams in 2A.
