See 2021 Michigan high school baseball All-State teams

With the 2021 Michigan high school baseball season now in the books, it’s time to look at which players across the state received one of the most prestigious honors.

After missing out on the 2020 season because of the pandemic, players got another chance to showcase their skills this season and many didn’t leave anything to chance on their way to Michigan High School Baseball Coaches Association All-State honors.

The MHSBCA recently released their All-State teams for Divisions 1-4, which featured a first and second team as well as a Coach of the Year. Here is a look at the MHSBCA honor squads for 2021.
