“We’re excited for this group,” said PJC Athletic Director and Head Baseball Coach Clay Cox, “they obviously had a strong freshman year, and that’s why they’ve been selected to play in the All-Star game by the coaches across the conference. It’s our largest group in the time we’ve had here. This is a group that looks to go out and compete and show well for us.”

- Pitcher Carson Blakely of Hallsville.
- Infielder/outfielder Jackson Braun of Spring.
- Infielder Preston Gamster of Dallas.
- Infielder Ethan Guerra of Olathe, Kansas.
