STATEWIDE – Two of the best players in the area over the course of the past season were recognized by Legion baseball Zone 1 coaches Monday night as having dominated the region in 2017.
The coaches awarded Bangor’s Ethan Stoddard Player of the Year honors, coming off the heels of an exceptional slate. Stoddard drove in 15 runs this summer, putting up an impressive .344 batting average in that time. He also contributed on the mound for the Coffee News Comrades, going 3-1 with a 2.20 ERA.
Not to be outdone, Hampden’s Nick Guerrette was named Pitcher of the Year by the coaches. Guerrette, a former start at Hermon and now a Husson Eagle, was dominant this season for the Riverdogs. He was undefeated at 6-0, and sports a 2.13 ERA in that time.
Bangor will play Zone 4 runner-up Fayette-Staples Wednesday morning in the state playoffs.
