Appalachian League All-Stars Announced

The Appalachian League announced its postseason All-Stars, oh, nine days ago.  That’s quite the lag, even for me:

Catcher: Robert Stock, Johnson City Cardinals
First Base: Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg, Danville Braves
Second Base: Jose Altuve, Greeneville Astros
Third Base: Vinnie Catricala, Pulaski Mariners
Third Base: Rich Racobaldo, Johnson City Cardinals
Shortstop: Brian Dozier, Elizabethton Twins
Outfield: Cory Harrilchak, Danville Braves
Outfield: Brandon Haveman, Pulaski Mariners
Outfield: Brady Shoemaker, Bristol White Sox
Outfield: Cory Rogers, Princeton Rays
Designated Hitter: Josmil Pinto, Elizabethton Twins
Utility: Gabriel Noriega, Pulaski Mariners
Starting Pitcher: Vito Frabizio, Bluefield Orioles

Player of the Year: Riaan Spanjer-Furstenburg, Danville Braves
Pitcher of the Year: Matt Crim, Danville Braves
Manager of the Year: Paul Runge, Danville Braves

Spanjer-Furstenburg, owner of the coolest name in minor league baseball, was one of my three favorites for MVP. Greeneville’s Altuve and Johnson City’s Richard Racobaldo were the others.
