Vote: Who is the Tampa Bay Baseball Player of the Week (3/12/2024)?

We have 10 candidates for you to choose from

The Florida High School Baseball season is in full swing and we begin our Player of the Week polls for areas all around the state. Teams have started off the regular season with some great individual performances.

As such, we have 10 athletes nominated this week for the SBLive’s Tampa Bay Florida high school baseball player of the week award from March 4-March 9, and we ask you, the fans, to help decide who should indeed be the top athlete selected. Voting will conclude on Sunday, March 17th at 11:59 p.m. The winner will be announced in next week's poll. 

Congratulations to last week’s winner: 

Jackson Cucchi of Plant! 

Editor’s note: Our corresponding poll is intended to be fun, and we do not set limits on how many times a fan can vote during the competition. This poll is specifically for fans to vote on the players that have been nominated and in no way discredits any other player that may not be mentioned in our poll.

Here are the nominees: 

Edward Sax, Shorecrest Prep: The freshman pitcher pitched 5.1 innings, allowed one hit, one run in a 2-1 victory over Academy at the Lakes last week. 

Sergio Garcia, Zephryhills Christian Academy: Garcia made it happen at the plate and on the mound. The sophomore pitched four innings of shutout ball, struck out six and belted a home run, double in a 11-0 win over Bayshore Christian.
