The baseball bats and balls have been put away for almost two weeks, but as usual, coaches voted on the all-region teams after the high school regular baseball season. Each region's voting format is based on the region's by-laws so that the regions will vary. 

The Prep Sports Report has compiled all-region teams from the Savannah area that play in the Georgia High School Association, Georgia Independent Athletic Association, and the Georgia Association of Private & Parochial Schools.
