Baseball: Start thinking about All-Area teams

Since I asked the question in softball, I’m asking in baseball too. Start thinking of player of the year and first-team all area honorees. In all my years doing this, this could be the toughest of all. There are so many deserving players to choose from. You could come up with a solid first team all area’s just from the Sierra League alone. Of course the CIF playoffs will have a lot to do with it, but who are your leading candidates to this point. Go ahead and fill in the blanks, and make your arguments.
Player of the year: ?
First team
Pitcher: (2); Catcher: (1); Infielders: (4); Outfielder: (3); Utility: (1)
