Sports in Kansas has released its 2018 All-State Baseball Team. Selections were finalized by Chet Kuplen of Sports in Kansas with input from several media outlets in Kansas. Input was taken from coaches and athletic director nomination forms sent in to Sports in Kansas following the 2018 season, not prior. This is not the Coaches Association Team, this is from Sports in Kansas only. They also have an all-state team voted on by member coaches prior to the state tournaments.

Alex Fisher, Spearville, Senior

Fisher, who hits in the two hole, helped the Lancers to their first ever state championship in baseball and did so with seven homers and 32 RBI with a team leading .509 batting average. The senior shortstop and pitcher had 30 hits over the regular season in just 20 games and only struck out six times all season for the 2-1A champs. His seven home runs were the most in Kansas this season.  Fisher was also 6-1 on the mound this season. His biggest game came in the state championship where he has two triples and a single on the way to four RBIs to capture the 2-1A state title over Colgan.
