ATTENTION BASEBALL COACH

 

Dear Coach:
I am handling ALL the nominations for ALL classes for the Texas Sports Writers Association All-State Baseball Teams.

NEED NOMINATIONS ASAP!

We'll select three pitchers, a first baseman, a second baseman, a shortstop, a third baseman, a catcher, three outfielders and a designated player. We'll also have a second and third team.

Please include all pertinent BASEBALL information, and honors, along with classification and team record. Non-baseball accomplishments WILL NOT be included on the ballot. You can nominate up to five players (note, a player nominated at pitcher and shortstop counts as two positions, also if you have a great pitcher, but if he played elsewhere, nominate him at two positions).

If you are in the playoffs please fax in now and THEN RE-FAX and update stats ASAP when season is over. Trust me, every little RBI and pitching or team victory helps. Thanks.

Please fax the information to (979) 776-8923 or e-mail at robert.cessna@theeagle.com. Please try to avoid calling me if possible, it would be way too much if every coach tried to call.

I'm dealing with hundreds of coaches, trying to cover spring sports in our area as well, so life gets hectic. You can contact me via fax or e-mail (I'll confirm e-mail as I go through them). If you are worried, fax it and e-mail. I've found that works out, I'd rather have it twice than not at all. I have a big box on my desk, and everyone knows to put faxes/e-mails in there.

Thanks.

Sincerely yours,
Robert R. Cessna
All-State chairman

2016-2017 Realignment


The UIL has announced the 2016-2017 realignments and reclassifications.

Attention Coaches, Parents, Players and Fans! ...

When All-State football and volleyball teams are released and you look for a player that didn't make one of the teams -- please do us a favor before sending an irate E-mail listing all the reasons why your player was deserving to be on one of these teams.

We can't select players if they were never nominated. Coaches and/or sports writers are the only ones who can nominate a player(s). If they are not nominated - our writers can't vote on someone who is not on the ballot. So check with your coach FIRST to see if the player was even nominated.

There is no way a single sports writer, who compiles the ballots, can know every player across the state. Coaches are the life-line in helping us select players. If coaches choose not to participate in submitting their players -- then we can't do anything beyond that.
