Sports360AZ All-Academic Baseball Team (1A-4A)

Arizona Sports News online

For eight years, Sport360AZ has been committed to acknowledging the best and brightest student-athletes in Arizona.

While the spring sports season has been cut short, we still wanted to recognize how these athletes continue to thrive in unprecedented circumstances.

The high school sports community responded.

We are excited to introduce the Sports360AZ All-Academic Spring Sports Teams brought to you by Venezia’s Pizzeria and IBEW Local 640 to recognize the excellence of student-athletes not only in athletics but in the classroom as well.

The 2020 Sports360AZ All-Academic Spring Team is the largest group of nominees we’ve received in the history of the award. This year’s spring team nearly quadrupled last year’s total. Additionally, the 2020 All-Academic Track team is the largest individual team we’ve had in eight years of recognizing these students.

Thank you for your support of these student-athletes!

A few notes on how the team was compiled: 

Sports360AZ reached out to every athletic director in the state, as well as every varsity head coach for the above sports requesting nominations based on performance in the classroom. We also opened up nominations to parents and players as well. This is the only way to be named to the all-academic team.

Thank you to the high school community for recognizing these student-athletes!

IBEW Local 640 was chartered in 1925 to provide the best-qualified Electricians to our signatory Contractors and provide livable wages, health and retirement benefits for our members. In Arizona, the IBEW is the only organization that certifies the skills and knowledge of a Journeyman Wireman, and then backs that certification with a guarantee to the employers who hire them. Our Contractors and Members have done extensive work at Arizona’s largest schools and universities, including large solar installations, and have been involved in most of the major sports stadiums/arenas in the Phoenix Metro area. As new green technologies are incorporated into the nation’s power grid, Local 640 leads the way in our ability to train and provide qualified manpower for solar and wind installations in the quantities that will be required to complete these projects. 

Thank you so much for your nominations, and be sure to use #Sports360AZScholars when sharing these teams on social media.
