1996 Cotuit Kettleers Roster –¬†Third Place (23-19-2)

Although the Kettleers ended the ’96 season (23-19-2, third in the West) with a better record than any team in the opposing Eastern Division, the competition in the Western Division proved far more challenging. After weeks of serious contention for the Western Division crown, Cotuit eventually bowed to Wareham and Falmouth and did not qualify for the postseason. The well-rounded Kettleer club led the league in fielding (.972), placed second in batting average (.245) and slugging percentage (.333) and trotted out a pitching staff which combined for a 2.80 ERA. Relief pitcher Chris Aronson (0.39, 6 saves) and outfielder Greg Hanoian (16 SB) won spots on the Cape League team which played the Colorado Silver Bullets. All-Star catcher/outfielder Jon Schaefer (.310) lead the league in slugging (.524) and placed in the top two for total bases (76), OBP (.425), and extra base hits (18). Fellow All Star Glenn Davis, who topped the league in RBI (30) and triples (4), played all 44 games at first base and also managed to hit for the cycle on June 28. First-year catcher Gino Chiaramonte (.260, 5 HR) and returning pitcher Jack Cressend (7-0, 1.89) rounded out the Kettleer All-Star contingent. Although Cressend spent the latter part of the season as a member of the Red Sox Class A club at Lowell, he led the league in wins for the second consecutive summer, reaching a total 14-1 mark over two seasons.
