3 Skins, a Bear on baseball MLL 1st team

Three Calaveras Redskins and one Summerville Bear were named to the 2014 first-team All-Mother Lode League baseball squad.

Calaveras’ Thomas Boitano, Mike Seawell and Wyatt Durham, and Summerville’s Bryce Farrell were all selected by MLL coaches to the first-team after standout performances this season.

Boitano was one of the league’s most consistent sluggers. The junior led the Redskins in 2014, hitting .459 at the plate with 34 hits and an area-best 34 RBI. He also blasted a home run and 11 doubles.

As a pitcher, Boitano finished second on the team with 39 strikeouts in 33 innings of service.

Seawell, a speedy senior, was a nightmare for opposing defenses when he reached base. He batted .307, which was the second best behind only Boitano, and stole 25 bases in as many attempts.

Durham, a left-handed pitcher, emerged as the Calaveras ace. The senior struck out a Redskin-high 45 batters. He finished with a 6-3 record and a 1.83 ERA in 65 innings tossed.

Farrell, the lone Summerville player earning a spot on the first-team, was one of the Bears’ top threats. The shortstop recorded a team-high 19 hits and drove in 10 runs, which was also the best mark for the Bears. The right-hander also generated a home run and two doubles, and ended his season hitting .284.

On the mound, Farrell tied for the team-lead with 26 strikeouts.

Linden’s Bailey Wright was the MLL’s Most Valuable Player and pitcher Justin Giovannoni was the Most Outstanding Player. Lions boss Chris Herrera was the Coach of the Year.

Other first-teamers were: Argonaut’s Miles Tomczak, Sean Purdy, Tyler Love, Matthew Huss and Linden Lions Eddie Murarik, Tommy Mayo and Shelby Lackey.

All-MLL second-team honorees: Aaron Avita (Argonaut), Austin Miguel (Bret Harte), Tyler Tafjen (Bret Harte), Jarrad Kirk (Calaveras), Malachi Stockdale (Calaveras), Josh Beal (Linden), James Berg (Linden), Ryan Alegre (Linden), Bret Holladay (Linden), Danny Robles (Summerville) and Darren Warnock (Summerville).

Wyatt Hockett (Bret Harte), Vincent Tarbot (Calaveras), Kai Bannister (Summerville), Michael Bonilla (Amador), Steven Casillas (Argonaut) and Beal all received Character Awards.
