    I don' think Colton Shaver will ever play for BYU. He will likely get drafted too high and offered too much money to turn down.

    I don't know what that senior class at Bingham is like, but I do know that their junior class is loaded. I'm already calling for a 2015 state championship For Bingham Baseball. Just for the record, I have no love for anything Bingham.

    How good would Spanish Fork be in 5A, if they didn't build Maple Mountain and/or Salem Hills. Three of the best teams in the state, in any classification, used to be one school. What's in the water in Spanish Fork?

    We all know preseason ranking dont mean anything. The best team in the state is Spanish Fork. 5 legit pitchers. The hardest thing for Shoe will be getting them all innings. Their 4 or 5 kid would prob be most schools 1 or 2. Good problem to have. 4a is weak as usual. Look at teams Skyline and Murray, didnt even get a sniff in 5a, now are right there in 4a. 5a is WIDE open. Cottonwood is loaded this yr. Bingham and Af will be in the mix as usual. The north wont pull any real weight. Pg is a team to watch,they can swing it but pitching and defense might slow them down. Jordan will have something to say with their seniors. Copper hills has talent but their coaching will hold them back. Riverton no matter how much talent always comes up short, might be time for a change. Alta and tville will make the tourny but prob be 0-2 or 1-2. Cant wait for it to get into the full swing of things should be fun to see it all play out. Especially with no clear cut favorite. So good luck to all the schools as right now everyone has a shot.

    Bingham #1 is hilarious to me...

    Just like sato said, how is that possible having graduated 11 seniors last year, and only Florez back.......

    But everyone knows it's Bingham baseball, coached by the best staff in the state, but with so little experience these first six games will help the miners find there line up,
    Beating Syracuse 18-0 was nice
    Beating Cwood 6-3
    Losing to Riverton was because a major wind aided three run bomb in the first
    Still three more games vs two solid 3a teams in SF, and Juan Diego, then American Fork

    Then region!

    But it is baseball and anyone can win it in 5A this year good luck to all teams

    P.s go watch Colten Shaver of Jordan, this years best player in Utah

    Well Hardman was a senior for American Fork last year and has moved on to college so it is going to be pretty hard for him to contribute much this year.
