First team at a glance

* Brandon Agamennone, Arundel, junior, pitcher -- Part of the Wildcats' one-two pitching punch with Tim Giles, Agamennone was 8-0 with four saves and a 0.71 ERA in 69 1/3 innings. A right-hander with a good fastball, superb curve and slider and the poise of a pro, he struck out 91 and walked only 11, giving up just 39 hits in pacing the Wildcats to the state 4A title and the top ranking in The Baltimore Sun poll and the Easton National Poll published by Collegiate Baseball.

* Brian Boteler, Glenelg, junior, DH -- Howard County's Player of the Year batted .470 with a .598 on-base percentage and a .727 slugging percentage with eight doubles, three homers, 24 RBI and 24 runs scored. The third baseman has driven in 43 runs over the past two seasons.

* Kenny Cloude, McDonogh, senior, pitcher -- Last year's Player of the Year was picked on the sixth round (highest of any local player) of the recent major-league amateur draft by the Seattle Mariners. The 6-foot-1, 170-pound right-hander was 7-3 and hit .448. He had 35 RBI for the second straight season, second in the metro area.

* Jamie Coons, Edgewood, senior, outfield -- Harford County's Player of the Year, the speedy Coons capped his three-year varsity career by leading his team to the Class 2A, Region IV final. Coons led the metro area in stolen bases with 31 and scored 30 runs with a .525 batting average that included 31 hits and three homers. Coons had no peers in tracking down fly balls and possesses a strong arm.

* Mike Goldberg, Glenelg, sophomore, infield -- Goldberg, a key offensive cog in Glenelg's state 2A championship season, hit .373, leading the metro area in homers with seven and in RBI with 36, a school record. His home run total is believed to be the highest achieved by a sophomore. Goldberg, who has good hands and a strong arm from shortstop, also scored 27 runs.

* Josh Itzoe, Calvert Hall, senior, infield -- A standout second baseman as a junior, Itzoe made a remarkable transition to shortstop this spring for the MSA A Conference champion Cardinals. Itzoe, drafted on the 40th round by the Orioles, batted .432 with an on-base percentage of .516, scored 29 runs and drove in 18 as leadoff batter.

* Larry Marino, Calvert Hall, senior, infield -- Marino batted .364 with 22 RBI for the MSA A Conference champions. A sure-handed third baseman with a great arm and power, Marino has received a scholarship to Wake Forest. He hit two homers and four doubles, stole four bases and scored 14 runs.

* Brian Matz, Calvert Hall, senior, pitcher -- This left-hander was one of the main reasons Calvert Hall retained its MSA A Conference championship and went 21-4. Matz, who has received a scholarship to Clemson, was 8-0 and 16-2 over his final two seasons. He led the metro area with 107 strikeouts in 71 1/3 innings. He walked only 32 and had an ERA of 1.67 and beat McDonogh twice in four days in the MSA playoffs. Matz also

batted .349.

* John Milisitz, Severna Park, senior, catcher -- Possessing the most feared arm in Anne Arundel County, the UMBC-bound catcher did not allow a runner to steal a base this spring. He hit six homers to finish his three-year career for the Falcons with a county and state public school record 15. Milisitz batted .500, with 25 RBI, 12 runs scored, seven doubles, one triple and nine steals.

* Randy Musgrove, Lansdowne, senior, outfield -- Musgrove was the heart and soul of the 18-3 Vikings' Class 3A championship, the school's first state title in any sport. Musgrove batted .378 with 17 RBI, five doubles, two triples and seven steals, and committed only one error. As a pitcher, Musgrove was 8-0, including a 3-0 state title victory over Centennial. The right-hander had an 0.62 ERA in 55 innings.

John Sauer, Patterson, senior, outfield -- Sauer was a standout with a bat and on the mound for the 4A Region IV semifinalist Clippers. Selected on the 28th round by the Chicago Cubs, Sauer batted .500 with five homers, four doubles, four triples, 26 RBI and 27 runs scored, and he was 17-for-17 stealing bases. On the mound, Sauer was 6-3 in 52 2/3 innings with 89 strikeouts and a 1.85 ERA.
