Top 50 right handed pitchers from the 2022 Southern Section high school baseball season

From Notre Dame's Cole Clark to Orange Lutheran's Louis Rodriguez, the Southern Section was loaded with talented right handed pitchers this season.

With the 2022 Southern Section high school baseball season in the books, we're continuing to look at some of the Section's top players position by position from this past year. We started behind the plate, and then moved to first base, second base, shortstopthird base and then the outfield. Now we're onto right handed pitchers.

There are many outstanding right handers in the Southern Section, but we're trying to narrow down the best of the best! Tag us on Twitter or Instagram at @SBLiveCA and let us know about other athletes worthy of fans’ attention.
