The 2015 CCL season has drawn to a close, and the All-CCL team has been announced. Foresters catcher Jeremy Montalbano was named league MVP after batting .296 with 38 RBI and a team-leading 7 homers. Gary Cornish was named the CCL’s most outstanding pitcher. He led the ‘Sters with a 9-1 record and a miniscule 2.18 ERA on the season. In 62 innings this year, he struck out a Foresters-best 58 while walking only 12.
Montalbano provided a good deal of thump in the middle of the lineup for the Foresters this season. He led the team in hits, doubles, and home runs and was second on the team in RBI. In addition to his offensive prowess, Montalbano also spent the year as the team’s primary catcher. Working tirelessly with the pitching staff, he showed tremendous improvements from last year.
Cornish’s nine wins were second-most ever in a season for a Foresters pitcher, tied with Chris Bodishbaugh’s total in 2007 and trailing only Gabe Neboiya’s 10 wins way back in 1999.
In addition to Montalbano, right fielder Granger Studdard, shortstop John Holland, and utility player David Greer were all named to the CCL All-League Team. Joining Cornish as top CCL pitchers on the season were Glenn Otto and Garett King.
Congratulations to our ‘Sters on a great season! —- Ryan Riffenburgh
