San Antonio - Trinity rising junior Rafe Chaumette will be a starting outfielder for Sunday's New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) All-Star Game in Holyoke, Massachusetts.
The NECBL is a nationally recognized top-tier summer league that recruits college players from throughout the United States and foreign countries. There are 13 teams divided into the Northern and Southern Divisions, which will meet in the All-Star Game.
Chaumette is a member of the New Bedford (MA) Bay Sox and will start in the outfield for the Southern Division. As of July 23, Chaumette leads the league with a .394 batting average, going 39-99 at the plate.
As a sophomore Trinity Tiger last season, Chaumette was elected to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings NCAA Division III All-West Region Third Team. He also made the D3baseball.com All-West Region Second Team. Earlier, Chaumette was selected for the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) First Team for the second straight occasion.
The hard-hitting Chaumette led Trinity in the 2018 campaign with a .392 batting average, while driving in 47 runs. He was second on the team in runs scored, doubles, and stolen bases.
Head Coach Tim Scannell completed his 20th season at the helm and guided the Tigers to a 33-9 overall record and a 14-4 mark in the SCAC. Coach Scannell was elected the SCAC Co-Baseball Coach of the Year, which earned him at least a share of the accolade for the 10th time in his career.
Sunday's NECBL All-Star Game is scheduled to begin at 5:10 p.m. EDT at Mackenzie Stadium in Holyoke. Additional information about the league and game may be found at www.necbl.com.
