TUCSON, Ariz. ó The 2009 Louisville Slugger High School All-American team features a remarkable collection of athletic talent.

The squad features 19 players who were chosen in the first three rounds of the 2009 Major League Draft.

Many of the All-Americans are players of the year in their respective league, region or state, and several have already received numerous national and local honors for their baseball skills.

Heading the list of top players is 1B/LHP Jeff Malm of Bishop Gorman H.S. (Las Vegas, Nev.), who was named the 2009 Louisville Slugger Player of the Year.

Malm has done it all in his career as a high school player, both on the mound and at the plate, helping his team to four consecutive state championships.

His name now appears in the National Federation of High School Sportsí all-time record books in several categories. He tied the career hits with 277. He had the final hit in the state championship game. He also is second for career doubles (75) and fourth for career RBI (255).

He finished this season batting .564 with 17 home runs and 69 RBI.

On the mound, he was 11-1 with a 1.50 ERA, 87 strikeouts in 65.1 innings. In the opening game of the state tournament, he pitched a complete game (8 innings) two-hitter, striking out a school record 15 batters, in a 2-1 win against Green Valley. He came in for relief during the championship game against Cimarron-Memorial, striking out four batters in two innings for the save.

He signed with Southern California.

This marks the 13th season that Louisville Slugger has sponsored the High School All-Americans as selected by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

Players were nominated by their high school coaches or were recommended by other coaches due to receiving high honors in their region or state.
