Can we have a Sanity Check here on the poll for the best baseball player? All of the articles I have read in the Register indicate that Garabedian has been out for most of the season with an injury. Shouldn't a player have some 2013 statistics to support the consideration of being the States Best Baseball Player? It seems to me that there are plenty of players in the state that are proving thier worth each and every week. I believe if we are going to give accolades to players, there should be something of substance to back it up.

It has nothing to do with what school the player is from. I think Notre Dame is a fine school. As a matter of fact I have relatives that have attended it. I do not care who the player is or where they play. I just think that if you are to be in consideration as being the Best Player in the State, then you should have some current statistics to support that claim. No One would consider Derek Jeter to be the best player in the MLB for 2013, but if he was playing and hitting .340 and making the plays in the field, then he would deserve that consideration. Past accomplishments and/or hype should not come into play when considering Best Player, All State Player etc.

this poll was initially started prior to the beginning of the baseball season and no one had played a game or accumulated any statistics. I'm sure the players being considered are honored and not taking it as serious as you seem to be!

Polls like star of the day or star of the week are just products of the twiiter and social media phenomena...the person above obvi followed HS baseball enough to know some stats but the poll is intended to be a fun exercise and not a prize with a cash award...lighten up people...who next up in the poll?
