The league released the 2017 All-SCCBL Teams on Sunday, with 32 players making up two teams. League Champion Palm Springs POWER had 12 players selected to an all-league team, the most of any SCCBL member.  The SoCal Bombers followed with seven selections, and the San Diego Force had six.

Ryan Mota (POWER) was named SCCBL MVP after having a monstrous season at the plate, breaking the POWER’s single season home run record with 12.  He logged 39 hits on the season with half of them going for extra bases.  Mota led the POWER with 37 RBI and an .840 slugging percentage.  The California Baptist commit finished the regular season batting .433 and is a First-Team All-SCCBL selection.

Sawyer Gipson-Long (POWER) was named SCCBL Pitcher of the Year after leading the Power with six wins in the regular season.  The freshman out of Mercer University struck out 42 batters in 34 innings pitched and led his team with a 1.32 ERA.  He walked just four batters.  Gipson-Long was also a First-Team All-SCCBL selection.
