NORTH ADAMS, Mass. – Following an impressive first half of the year, rising senior Michael LaBeau has been selected to the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star game, as announced by the NECBL on Sunday.
LaBeau was one of nine pitchers selected from seven North Division teams and one of four players from his team, the Keene Swamp Bats to make the all-star roster. Impressively, LaBeau is the only player from the 30-member all-star team at a Division III school. Overall, he is the only Division III pitcher on either all-star team, and one of two non-Division I pitchers, along with Franklin Pierce All-American Tanner Bird.
This summer, LaBeau has helped the Swamp Bats stay atop the North Division standings as the team's closer. He is tied for second in the NECBL with six saves, while also boasting a 2-1 record in 18.1 innings. LeBeau has given up just two earned runs for a 0.98 ERA to go along with 21 strikeouts and just four walks in 14 appearances. He is the only player in the entire NECBL to appear in at least 11 contests and own an ERA under 1.00.
The all-star game will be hosted by the Newport Gulls at historic Cardines Field on Sunday, July 17. For more information on the game and the complete rosters, click here.
