San Diego Swing: 24 for 2024

Jack Shannon
San Diego Area Scout

ENCINITAS, CALIF. - The San Diego Swing continues this week with an early follow list for the class of 2024. With the 2022 and 2023 classes already being highlighted, it is time to take a look at an impressive list of underclassmen already making some noise in the San Diego area. The 2024 class features former future games standouts, power program commitments and many uncommitted players. America’s finest city will be kicking off the new year with a heavy slate of baseball with  the San Diego section winter ball season ramping up and MLK weekend tournaments at USD and SDSU. This list provides a good starting point for the 2022 season and will surely grow rapidly.
