These roughly 20 guys spent all season showcasing why they are the best among North Georgia baseball. Congrats to our 2018 BLITZ Baseball Player of the Year nominees.

As always, we collect our nominees from head coaches at each school. These are NOT for public voting.

WHAT’S NEXT? The nominees list will be narrowed down into a finalist pool. Our BLITZ voting panel, consisting of up to 20 members, will vote Heisman-style to determine the Player of the Year.
