The West Central Tribune released its All-Area Baseball Team for 2022. In this year’s All-Area team, 11 schools are represented. Among the 18 players selected — nine on the first team and nine on the second — are 12 seniors. KMS, Paynesville and MACCRAY lead the way with three sections each.
One of the youngest members of the All-Area Baseball Team is Minnewaska sophomore Dylan Alexander who made quite the impact for the 13-9 Lakers.
He was named the team’s most outstanding offensive player after hitting for a .488 average, a .577 on-base percentage and a 1.228 OPS. Seeing both time at catcher and in the outfield, Alexander had a 1.000 fielding percentage with three outfield assists. He was named All-West Central Conference.
“Dylan is an exceptional all-around player that has an incredible knowledge of the game,” said Minnewaska head coach Joe Alexander. “Having him in the middle of our lineup and behind the plate calling a game certainly is a contributing factor to our program’s success and promises to be fun to watch for the next couple years.”
