Nevada Preps has announced their 2017 All-State Baseball Team, and the three teams (First Team, Second Team, and Honorable Mention) feature the names of 18 former and current members of the LVBA Cardinals Scout Team. For a player to earn the distinction of "All-State" is very impressive, as it is a label that means these players were the best in the state of Nevada for their positions. The Las Vegas Baseball Academy would like to congratulate all these players, and we are very proud to have been able to be a small part of their success. The future of baseball in Las Vegas is very bright!
