Outlaws earn all-league mention

In addition to honors presented to baseball standout Garret Vohs, seven other Outlaws players were selected to all-league teams. Senior Adam Harper and sophomore Patrick Silva were second-team picks, and seniors Dillon Tucker, Connor Linn, Will Grace, and sophomores Easton Moore and Brody Duey earned honorable mention.

Harper was named second-team, all-league infield.

Adam played solid at third base for the Outlaws all season and finished league with a .538 batting average.

Croisant said, “Adam is a really good hitter and is extremely disciplined at the plate. He was robbed of not getting first-team, all-league because he had the kind of season that should have got him that.”

Silva earned second-team, all-league outfield. Patrick has typically been a catcher, but this year was asked to play in the outfield. He played mostly left field, but did see some time at center field also. Patrick hit extremely well for a sophomore and finished with a .308 batting average.

“Patrick was our third- or fourth-best hitter as a sophomore,” said Croisant. “He’s a very solid defensive player in the outfield, and if he gets to the ball he makes the play.”

Tucker earned honorable-mention first baseman. Dillon was third on the Outlaws squad in on-base percentage (.444) and finished with a .286 batting average. Coach Croisant told The Nugget that Dillon was disciplined at the plate and did a nice job of getting on base.

Linn was selected honorable-mention utility player. Connor played shortstop, second base, first base, and even saw some time in left field. He finished with a .261 batting average.

“Connor was really a true utility player, and he did a great job in the lead-off spot getting on base,” said Croisant.

Grace was honorable-mention outfielder, and had a .250 batting average.

“Will had a week-long COVID quarantine, so that was a challenge, but he did a solid job for us and continued to perform for us,” said Croisant.

Moore earned honorable mention at utility. Easton was the Outlaws’ designated hitter and finished the season with a .333 batting average.

“Easton was our third- or fourth-best hitter on the team,” said Croisant. “He’s a super-aggressive hitter and free-swinging.”

Duey earned honorable mention at outfield. Brody typically plays infield, but stepped into a role where he was needed, which was primarily center field. He finished the season with a .243 batting average. Croisant stated that Brody did a great job defensively at center field for the Outlaws.
