2019 Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team Announced
November 5, 2019 - Atlantic League (AtL) News Release
(Lancaster, Pa., Nov. 5, 2019) - The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball today announced its 2019 Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team. Players were selected through voting from league club administrators and field managers.
"Defense is an under-recognized key to baseball success," said League President Rick White. "While there were many outstanding performances in the field this season, these nine players demonstrated extraordinary expertise with their arms and gloves."
2019 marks the fifth consecutive season in which the Atlantic League has selected a Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team among its post-season awards. The honor, based on players' defensive capabilities during the regular season, commemorates the red-and-blue-stitched Rawlings baseball that was adopted as the league's official baseball in 2015.
The following is the 2019 Atlantic League Red, White and Blue All-Defensive Team:
POSITION PLAYER TEAM
Catcher Logan Moore New Britain Bees
First Baseman K.C. Hobson Lancaster Barnstormers
Second Baseman Craig Massey Somerset Patriots
Third Baseman Hector Gomez High Point Rockers
Shortstop Edwin Garcia Southern Maryland Blue Crabs
Outfielder Caleb Gindl Lancaster Barnstormers
Outfielder Darian Sandford Lancaster Barnstormers
Outfielder Cory Vaughn Southern Maryland Blue Crabs
Pitcher Daryl Thompson Southern Maryland Blue Crabs
