“The Orange Coast League coaches came together and put together this ‘dream team’ in place of our normal all-league honors,” said Orange baseball coach George Chase. “We felt as a league the kids need to be recognized in some fashion. Credit to the Sunset League in starting this trend and I hope other leagues follow.”
