Six members of the North Shore Navigators have been selected to the 2010 New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) All-Star Game set to take place Sunday, July 18 at Cardines Field in Newport, Rhode Island.
Pitchers Crayton Bare (University of Baylor), Nolan Corr (Wheaton College), and Bryant Gauthier (Southern New Hampshire University) will represent the Navigators on the mound, while outfielders Matt Avery (Cypress Junior College) and Jason Banos (Columbia University) and second baseman Tyler Kuehl (Point Loma Nazarene) were selected as well. Avery and Kuehl will both be starters in this year’s annual event.
Infielder Cody Dent (University of Florida) and catcher Bryce Tafelski (U-Cal Santa Barbara) will serve as alternates for the East.
In addition, North Shore head coach Jeff Waldron, a Lynn Classical and Boston College graduate, will serve as manager for the Eastern division team because the Navigators are currently in first place (16-11) within the division.
“Our organization is extremely proud of and happy for our players’ and head coach’s selection to the All-Star Game,” said Navigators’ General Manager Peter Delani. “It speaks highly of the quantity of high caliber talent we have in Lynn this season, and it bodes well for these individual players going forward in their careers. Last year we had six players chosen to the All-Star Game, four of whom were selected in the 2010 MLB Draft.”
