Isaak "Ice" Gutierrez P/C/3B/OF (Tomateros De California) (CA) – Simply put, he is the most outstanding player on the most outstanding team.

Garrett Wolforth- (Texas Nationals) (TX) - Wolforth is an exceptional player at multiple positions, one of the best player’s in the country who can certainly do it all. One of the few players in the country who can truly play every position and excel everywhere you play him.
Bryan Duenas P/1B (Tomateros de California) (CA) - A dominating force in the middle of the potent Tomateros batting lineup. Duenas has a great glove at first base and is a very strong pitcher. He provides the Tomateros with tremendous power with his bat. This was proved at the Elite 32 World Series when Duenas was chosen as the Offensive Tournament MVP.
Joseph (JoJo) Quintanilla (Lamorinda Monarchs) (CA) - “JoJo” is quite possibly the second best player in the country. He is the fastest player on the Monarchs team and has the most power at the plate. “JoJo” hit leadoff for the Monarchs and also led the Elite World Series with 5 home runs.

Connor Caminita SS, C, P (Twelve Baseball (TX) and Belle Chase Diamond Dawgs (LA)- Caminita very well could have been the best player at Elite 32 this year. He is a five tool player with speed, power and cannon for an arm.
Carter Williams 2nd/3rd/P (GBC Team Acceleration) (NC) - Williams was the leadoff batter for one of the top teams in the country. Williams showed great discipline at the plate and wreaked havoc on the base paths with his blazing speed. Williams set the table for the 3,4,5 hitters on GBC Team Acceleration.

Austin Bergner P, C, OF, 1B (Leon Medical Centers and 12U Bullets Gold) (FL) Bergner is the ace of the pitching staff, on one of the best teams in the country. He is regarded by many as one of the top five pitchers in the country at the 11U age group. Austin is a solid catcher with a tremendous amount of knowledge about the game and how to call the right pitches at the right times.
Juan Hillman P, OF Chet Lemon’s Juice (FL) - Regarded by many as the #1 left-handed pitcher at this age group. Hillman throws gas and has one of the best curveball for his age.

Zack “Husky” Roberts C, P, IF (Leon Medical Centers (FL) and 12U Chiefs Baseball (GA) An unbelievable talent on one of the top teams in the country. “Husky” is possibly the strongest pound for pound 11U player in the country. Roberts hits for power with an incredible ability to hit homeruns in the most crucial situations. Along with his hitting, “Husky” is a tremendous catcher with a great arm and blocking ability. Roberts carries himself like a major league ball player and with his five tools, we may see him there one day.
Cobie Vance SS (GBC Team Acceleration) (NC) - Vance is a phenomenal athlete with excellent range and a strong arm. Vance’s style is similar to that of Derek Jeter; he can do everything at a high level. He hits for average, has speed and plays exceptional defense.
