Atholton, senior, center fielder
This returning All-Metro first-team pick batted .478 with 22 stolen bases last season and led the Raiders to the Howard County title. He has signed a letter of intent to continue his career at George Mason.
Gilman, junior, center fielder-pitcher
The power-hitting center fielder batted .356, with four home runs, five triples and 46 runs scored last season. This year, the hard-throwing left-hander also will add pitching to his repertoire. He has committed to play at South Carolina.
Calvert Hall, junior, pitcher-third baseman
Delp was 7-2 with a 2.27 ERA as a sophomore for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference champions, and was one out away from a perfect game against Archbishop Curley in the playoffs. He is a returning All-Metro second-team selection and member of this year's preseason All-State team.
Reservoir, junior, pitcher
This fire-balling, 6-foot-5 right-hander was 7-2 with a 1.40 ERA last season while throwing in the low-to-mid 90s. The South Carolina commit also features an above average curveball and changeup.
Archbishop Curley, senior, pitcher-outfielder
This hard-throwing left-hander can touch 90 mph with his fastball, and last year struck out 59 batters in 42 innings. Committed to Radford, Ridgely also batted .385 with 11 doubles and seven stolen bases.
Calvert Hall, senior, second baseman-pitcher
Rodriguez hit .469 last season for the MIAA A Conference champions after batting .474 as a sophomore. He also became a starting pitcher near the end of last season, going 3-0, including a win in the championship series against Gilman. He has received interest from several colleges, but also might be a Major League Baseball draft prospect.
Gilman, senior, pitcher-infielder
The son of former Orioles outfielder and Gilman coach Larry Sheets batted .425 with 19 doubles, four homers and 34 RBIs a year ago to earn All-Metro first-team honors. He also won nine games as a pitcher, and will continue his career at Wake Forest.
North Harford, senior, pitcher
This 6-foot-4 right-hander combined a strong fastball with effective off-speed pitches to post an ERA just over 1.00 last season. The preseason All-State pick has signed with Maryland.
Mount St. Joseph, senior, pitcher-outfielder
This Notre Dame recruit went 6-1 with 69 strikeouts in 522/3 innings on the mound last season to earn All-Metro first-team honors. He also produced at the plate, with 27 hits and 14 RBIs, and is a preseason All-State selection.
Calvert Hall, senior, center fielder
A speedster with power, Stokes batted .340 last season with 17 extra-base hits and 19 stolen bases. He already ranks as the program’s second all-time leader in steals, and will continue his career at Maryland, if he doesn't turn pro. He is also a member of this year's preseason All-State team.
