The College Baseball Blog covered the Cape Cod Baseball League All-Star game for the third straight summer and second straight at Fenway Park. The Western Division used a strong group of pitchers to grab a 5-0 victory over the Eastern Division in front of 10,470 fans. Arizona State’s Zach Wilson was named the Western Division MVP after going 1-5 with an RBI double while Caleb Ramsey was named the Eastern Division MVP as he went 2-4 with an RBI. Tyler Ray from Troy got the win while Kentucky’s Braden Kapyten got the loss after giving up a run in the fifth inning without giving up a hit. Here are some of my thoughts on the game in no particular order.
