Sherwood High School Junior Amari Allen was named the 2022 All-Met Baseball Player of the Year by the Washington Post after helping lead the Warriors to the team’s second straight 4A Maryland State Championship. He went undefeated as a pitcher (9-0 with 81 strikeouts and an ERA of just .56).
A dynamic pitcher with a 90-plus-mph fastball and a powerful hitter who tied the state record for home runs in a season (13), Allen was a force in earning Sherwood its second straight Maryland 4A title. The Class 4A co-player of the year batted .516 for the season and had back-to-back multi-hit games in a semifinal and final at the state tournament. On the mound, Allen went 9-0 with 81 strikeouts and a 0.56 ERA.
Amari was congratulated on Twitter by Baltimore Orioles great, Adam Jones, following Amari’s selection as Player of the Year. “Futures bright @amariallen17 continue to put in the Work!” Allen is currently uncommitted as he heads into his senior year at Sherwood. The left handed pitcher has been described as having a “true 3-pitch arsenal that he throws in any count. His FB sits in the higher 80s with ticks of 91-92 mph & good sink.” by Prep Baseball Report.
