The 3A/4A North Puget Sound League recently announced the 2021 season all-league team honors for boys baseball.

The 14 teams in the North Puget Sound League were split in half into 3A and 4A conferences. Todd Beamer and Thomas Jefferson were put into a 3A conference with the three Auburn high schools, along with Kentlake and Kent Meridian.

Federal Way and Decatur joined a 4A conference with Tahoma, Kennedy Catholic, Kentridge, Kentwood and Mt Rainier located in Des Moines.

This year, each NPSL school played 14 regular season baseball games from April 20 to May 21, which included two games against an inter-conference city rival; 4A Federal Way played 3A Beamer and 4A Decatur played 3A Thomas Jefferson.

The season ended with each team playing a single conference crossover game on May 22 and no statewide playoffs this year.

Last year, high school players lost their entire baseball season due to statewide closures.
