Three locals earn All-State baseball honors from MaxPreps

The final baseball honors are out and three local players have been honored by MaxPreps which named its Large Schools All-State team.

Pitcher Bailey Falter and outfielder Chris Ceballos, both seniors, were named to the first team while senior second baseman Kyle Isbel of Etiwanda made the second team.

Falter, who was drafted in the fifth round and signed by the Phillies, was 6-2 with a 1.20 ERA and 97 strikeouts in 76 innings pitched.

Ceballos, who has signed with Cal State Fullerton, hit .422 batting with 7 doubles, 25 RBI, 27 runs and a school single season record of 12 home runs.

Isbel, the Most Valuable Player in the Baseline League, hit .397 with 6 doubles, 2 triples, 6 home runs, 28 RBI and 34 runs scored. He has signed with UNLV.

All three players were first team All-Inland Valley selections by the Daily Bulletin.

Etiwanda baseball standout Kyle Isbel commits to UNLV

Etiwanda High School infielder Kyle Isbel has made a verbal commitment to UNLV

He also visited a number of Division I schools including USC, Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara and Cal State Northridge but decided he’d take the option out of state.

“I like the atmosphere there and the new facilities,” he said. “I spent a lot of time with the coaches and got to talk to some of the players and it seemed like a great fit.”

It helped that Isbel has another good friend going there in Austin Pritchard of Riverside J.W. North who has also committed to the school.

Isbel hit .347 with seven doubles and 14 RBI as a junior for the Eagles, earning second team All-Baseline League honors. He plans to major in business or sports medicine.

UNLV finished first in the Mountain West Conference last year. The team was 36-25 overall and 20-10 in conference play.
