The return of baseball at the high school, prep and college levels in 2021 brought us many memorable moments across New England. Our list of the top 10 moments from 2021 highlights many of the outstanding team performances of the last year. Now it's time to honor the Player of the Year recipients at each level of baseball across New England.
While many of these players are at the top of their respective levels of baseball, this is not an accounting of the top prospects. Instead, it recognizes individuals whose performances exceeded expectations and led to unprecedented team success.
Candidates in most categories are New England natives. College and summer collegiate players must be from New England or play at a New England school.
Here's a look at New England Baseball Journal's 2021 Player of the Year recipients.
