Carbon’s Anderson, Lewis and Rich receive All-State Baseball recognition for 2019 season

Carbon High School senior baseball players Ty Anderson and Collin Lewis have been named to the baseball 3A All-State Second Team. Freshman Keaton Rich was also tabbed as an Honorable Mention.

Pegged as an All-State first team selection during his junior campaign, Anderson again served as an anchor for the Carbon baseball team at shortstop throughout the season. In the field he logged a fielding percentage of .820 and recorded seven double plays. At the plate he ended with a .292 batting average and a team high eight triples.

Lewis earned the honor after leading Carbon in the majority of offensive categories. Finishing with a .346 batting average, Lewis recorded a team-high 27 hits, 17 RBIs and one home run. On the mound he finished with a record of 2-3, while gathering 27 strikeouts and a final ERA of 4.05.

Rich receives the Honorable Mention after appearing in 26 games, including 10 on the pitcher’s mound. Accumulating a batting average of .303, Rich recorded 20 hits and 12 RBIs. Adding depth on the mound, he finished with a record of 2-2 and 1.35 ERA. In the 3A State Tournament Rich allowed just four hits, while striking out six batters in the complete-game shutout against Manti.

The 3A All-State teams were selected by each of the coaches in the classification and the Deseret News selects a MVP from the group.
