The South Charlotte Sports Report and South Charlotte Sports Radio is proud to present our 3rd Annual All-South Baseball Team.  The team is composed of players from schools inside the coverage area of The South Charlotte Sports Report and South Charlotte Sports Radio.  Input has been asked for and received from high school baseball coaches and other respected members of the South Charlotte baseball community.  Unlike most of the End of Season recognition teams produced by media outlets, The South Charlotte Sports Radio Team has attended over 60 high school baseball games this spring and watched each team and player in the area play multiple games.  Players that play multiple positions were eligible to be selected at each position and may be listed at a secondary position or DH to fit into the structure of the All-South Team.  As with any recognition team, tough choices had to be made and there are many outstanding players that may not appear on the 2016 All South Baseball Team.   We salute all players, coaches and families that worked hard all season to present another great year of baseball inside our community.
