With the 2014 high school baseball season getting underway last 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 preseason coaches' projections. Every coach was invited to participate and submit information on their team.

There are six new head baseball coaches in 5A this year: Jeff Toller (Viewmont), Matthew Bezzant (Lone Peak), Aaron Perkins (Hunter), Mark Larsen (Weber), Justin Nakishi (Syracuse) and Cory Norton (West).

Here's a region-by-region look at all 26 teams in 5A.

Here's a suggestion for the Deseret News: Please stop using these slide shows that force people to click through every slide to see their teams forecast. How about listing all the teams up front so viewers can select the slide they want and go straight to it??
