With the 2017 high school baseball season getting underway this week in what should be another fantastic season, the Deseret News has compiled capsules for every 5A team in the state with information on what to expect this season.

The region rankings are based on coaches' preseason projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There are five new baseball coaches in 5A this year: Andy Concepcion (Brighton), Steve Hansen (Mountain Crest), Joel Sundquist (Copper Hills), Jayson Kiselburg (West) and Quinn Downard (Hunter).
