2007 Louisville Slugger High School All-Americans

TUCSON, Ariz. — The 2007 Louisville Slugger High School All-American team is loaded with talent featuring 32 players who were chosen in the first two rounds (including the sandwich round) of the recent Major League Free Agent Draft.

Most of the All–Americans were players of the year in their region or state. Many have already received national honors from various organizations and several have played on the Junior National Team.

While we mainly focus on seniors, several outstanding juniors and sophomores also made the list.

Heading the pitcher’s list is RHP Tim Alderson of Horzion H.S. in Scottsdale, Ariz. He is the 2007 Louisville Slugger Pitcher of the Year.

The highly touted hurler has received numerous awards, including twice being named the Pitcher of The Year in the state of Arizona. He also was a member of the National Junior Team in 2006 and pitched two winning state championships games in 2005 and 2007.

During his junior year, Alderson set the school record for strikeouts with 122. In his sophomore year, he set the ERA record at 0.13. Over the past two spring seasons, he has struck out 232 hitters and only walked 12.

This season he posted a 12-0 record with a 1.05 ERA, 10 complete games, 111 strikeouts, 4 walks, three saves in 73.3 innings. Throughout high school, Alderson has never had a bad outing, according to his coach, Eric Kibler. He was chosen No. 22 overall in the first round of the draft by the Giants.

The 2007 Louisville Slugger Player of the Year is Michael Moustakas, a shortstop/third baseman from Chatsworth H.S., Calif. The 6-foot, 195 pound left-handed hitter was the overall No. 2 pick in this year’s draft by the Royals.

He has twice been selected as the Los Angeles Player of the Year. This spring, Moustakas hit .577 and broke his own school record and state record with 24 home runs and 52 RBI. He belted 52 career home runs. Last summer, he led the U.S. Junior National Team in runs scored with nine and hit a home run and collected 7 RBI at the World Championships.

This marks the 11th year that Louisville Slugger has sponsored the High School All Americans as selected by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

Here are the 2007 selections. Not all stats listed are final for the season.
