The Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association has released its 2013 All-State Team.
A pair of local players — North Harrison's Tyler Cockerham and South Central's Jason Boston — were among the honorable mentions in their respective classes.
Cockerham was one of the veterans on a Cougars squad. Planted in the North Harrison line-up since playing his freshman year, Cockerham shifted around various infield positions as a senior.
At the plate, Cockerham hit for a .442 average with 12 extra base hits. Among the 12 extras, three were home runs while four were triples and five were doubles.
Cockerham drove in 30 RBIs and also swiped 17 bags.
Adding pitching depth to the Cougars rotation, Cockerham was among the key pitchers for his team in 2013 as well.
On the bump, Cockerham was 6-4 with a 2.33 ERA. He struck out 33 in 39 innings pitched.
In Class A, Boston was recognized for the second consecutive year as an All-State honorable mention. The senior helped guide the Rebels to three straight regional appearances, reaching the regional final in 2013.
Through the postseason, Boston was the winning pitcher in three of South Central's four victories.
Statistically, Boston hit .383 with four home runs, six doubles and 29 RBIs. He also touted a .580 on base percentage.
On the hill, Boston was 10-1 with a 1.51 ERA, recording 87 strikeouts while walking 27.
Several Indiana High School baseball players were honored as All-State members after being selected in the 2013 MLB draft: Trey Ball (New Castle), Josh Van Meter (Norwell), Alex Krupa (Greenwood), Zack Brown (Seymour), Tyler Walsh (Evansville Mater Dei) and Daniel Ayers (Columbus North).
