Regular-season MVP Kolten Wong (Hawaii) and home run champion Jordan Ribera (Fresno State) lead the list of stars who were named to the 2010 Cape Cod Baseball League’s All-League team that was announced by commissioner Paul Galop this weekend.
A total of 24 players were selected to the elite team, with the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox and the Orleans Firebirds each placing four on the squad. The lone representative from the Cape League champion Cotuit Kettleers is starting pitcher Austin Wood (St. Petersburg), who went 3-0 with a 0.74 ERA this season.
FROM CCBL RELEASE
HARWICH – Credit his gritty, instinctual play, to being the player his teammates could count on in a tough situation, or to his military training, but Clint Moore (Army) was a logical choice to receive this year’s Manny Robello 10th Player award.
The award is presented each year to the player who has done more than the team has asked. As Commissioner Paul Galop noted while presenting the award, even Manny Robello, a longtime volunteer with the Cotuit Kettleers and the Cape League, would be hard-pressed to find a better candidate for the honor.

Army shortstop Clint Moore continues to impress scouts and coaches in the Cape Cod Baseball League as he is currently hitting .279 with a homer and 10 RBI in 20 games this summer. Moore took care of his summer military obligations during the last two summers giving him the opportunity to participate in the CCBL this year. He is an interesting case as he was by far the best shortstop I saw last year with his leadership skills on the field and his play on the diamond from turning a key double play or coming up with a big hit. He was named a finalist for the 2010 AAU Sullivan Award for the outstanding amateur athlete in the US based on the qualities of leadership, character, sportsmanship and the ideals of amateurism.
