Three Cotuit Kettleers players were selected to compete in the Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star game at Spillane Field in Wareham on July 25 at 6 p.m. Outfielder Jack Klein (Stanford), shortstop Mike Paez (Coastal Carolina) and left-handed pitcher Jon Woodcock (Virginia Tech) were named to the West Division All-Star team on Saturday.
Will Haynie (Alabama) was selected to compete in the home run hitting contest prior to the game.
Paez will be starting at shortstop for the West and leads the Kettleers with a .312 batting average, 29 hits and 13 runs scored. His average at the plate is the sixth-best in the league.
Woodcock boasts a 0.84 earned run average — second-best in the league. In six games (four starts), he’s 3-1 with 26 strikeouts and just six walks. He was named pitcher of the week for the week of July 5-11 for pitching seven scoreless innings in a win over Wareham.
Klein has hit .268 on the year with 19 hits and nine runs batted in and Haynie is tied for fourth in the league with four home runs.
