David Hole of the TRU WolfPack has been named a Canadian College Baseball Conference second-team all-star for the third straight year.
Hole, who is from Vancouver, was honoured at Thursday’s CCBC banquet, which kicked off the CCBC championship tournament at NorBrock Stadium this weekend. Hole earned the honour for his work as a catcher; in 2010, he was a designated hitter, while in 2011, he was a first-baseman.
Hole also won a league award for his work at the plate. The 21-year-old won the league’s batting title with an average of .374.
Hole’s teammate, third-baseman Alex Condon, a first-team all-star, won the league’s home run (nine) and RBI (30) titles.
Denver Wynn, a right-handed pitcher for TRU, was also a first-team all-star, and was a co-winner of the award for most victories. Wynn and Alex Regan of the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs, who had the league’s best earned-run average (1.07), each finished with five victories.
Wynn, a Kamloops native, was a second-team all-star a year ago.
TRU’s Tyler Lowey, a utility man who played in the infield and also pitched in relief, also was a first-team all-star. Lowey lost his right eye after fouling a pitch into it in October, but played the full season and was a solid contributor for the WolfPack.
TRU also had two people named to the second all-star team — Hole and designated hitter James Semaschuk.
PBA had eight players named to the all-star teams — CF Bretton Gouthro, Regan, C Travis Steinke, 1B Mitch Dornblut, 2B Evan Comeau, LF Corey Wood and DH Luke Barry were on the first team, while P Shane Dawson made the second team.
The Vancouver Island Baseball Institute Mariners had seven players named all-stars. SS Dallas Monk, RF Liam Goodall and P Connor Russell were named to the first team, and 2B Chad Schultz, 3B Cody Andreychuk, P Cody Chartrand and LF Aaron Witzke made the second team.
Okanagan College P Zach Burlon and SS Bryan Elias were on the second team, as were Calgary 1B Kyle Fruson and CF Miles Hunter.
