High school baseball players in the area continue to rake in the accolades and honors after the end of the 2019 season. Moses Lake High School’s Evan McLean was named as Washington Player of the Year by Scorebook Live.
McLean threw a perfect game, no-hitter in the 4A state tournament semifinal, helping lead the Chiefs to their first state championship since 1981. The Moses Lake senior is headed to Big Bend Community College next year. McLean finished the season with an 8-0 record from the mound with a 0.65 ERA and .465 batting average to boot.
Moses Lake’s Dax Lindgren was selected to the first team as well in the utility slot, the only junior selection on the first team. Fellow Chief Dominic Signorelli and Warden’s Ryan Arredondo received honorable mentions as well.
Chiefs head coach Donnie Lindgren was selected as the all-state coach of the year.
Washington All-State baseball teams have been chosen as well and will compete this weekend in Yakima. Donnie Lindgren will be the head coach of Team Adams, with his assistants Greco Signorelli, Dylan Signorelli and Rick Baldini joining him.
Three local players will compete for the team, including two players from the state champion Chiefs. McLean and Dominic Signorelli will be joined by Almira-Coulee-Hartline’s league MVP, Dalton Kentner.
Four teams will be fielded for the weekend, with the first games set for noon on Saturday, June 8. Winners of the matchups on Saturday will play each other on Sunday, with the losers playing as well.
