Cal-Hi Sports, which tracks and ranks prep sports teams statewide, has selected three local baseball players for its 33rd annual all-state baseball honors.
Tracy High pitchers John Jaeger and Jonah Wesely were among 35 seniors chosen for the all-state third team.
Jaeger, a right-handed pitcher, will play at University of the Pacific in Stockton. Wesely, a left-handed pitcher, now plays for the Tempe (Ariz.) Angels, the Rookie-class affiliate of the Los Angeles Angels.
Kimball High catcher Zack Perugi was selected for the 30-player medium-size-schools first team.
He has been accepted to University of the Pacific on an academic scholarship but is also exploring other colleges where he could play baseball.
In all, Cal-Hi Sports selected 245 players for all-state honors, including 60 players on its first and second teams.
