Mitchell Duo Named to FCBL All-Star Game

WEYMOUTH, Mass. — Two members of the Mitchell College baseball team were selected for the 2021 Futures Collegiate Baseball League (FCBL) All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 13 in New Britain, Conn.

Senior outfielder Hunter Yaworski and junior pitcher Kenny Heon will represent the Mariners at the FCBL’s “midsummer classic.” The two have spent the summer playing for the Norwich Sea Unicorns, which placed a total of seven players on the all-star roster.

Yaworski, an all-conference performer this past spring with the Mariners, has played in 20 games with Norwich and is batting .295 with nine RBI. He is also tied for the team lead with five doubles. Heon has made five relief appearances and is 2-0 with a 0.96 ERA. He has struck out 15 batters while issuing only one walk in 9.1 innings of work.

Featuring an East-West format, rosters were announced on Wednesday in anticipation of the league’s first All-Star Game since 2019. The West roster includes players from the New Britain Bees, league-leading Pittsfield Suns, Vermont Lake Monsters and Westfield Starfires, while the East side includes the first-place Brockton Rox, defending champion Nashua Silver Knights, Norwich Sea Unicorns and Worcester Bravehearts.
