NewRock All-Area 2015 baseball team

One thing I've found to be true in creating these All-Area teams is that the Newton/Rockdale area has a lot of impressive ball players. There is a lot of talent at this level and plenty that have the talent to play at the next level. With that said below you'll find the first and second All-Area teams for the 2014-2015 school year.

Salem comes up short in Gainesville upset

For a team that has the fourth-best record in Region 8-AAAAA, Salem (9-5, 4-3 Region 8-AAAAA) sure looked like a top tier team at home on the diamond facing Gainesville (12-2, 7-0 Region 8-AAAAA, a team that is undefeated in region play. Salem played hard and competed at a high level, and had it not been for a highly controversial call the Seminole might have own. Salem wasn't able to capitalize on enough scoring opportunities and they fell 2-1 to the Red Elephants.
