South Beats North, Milam MVP in CRCBL All Star Game

In a pitcher’s duel, the South Division took home a 3-0 win over the North in the annual CRCBL All-Star Game at Shirley Povich Field Monday night.


Kevin Milam (St. Mary’s), the game’s MVP, was one of 12 Big Train players to take part in the game – the most of any team.


“It’s awesome; well deserved,” Milam said. “We got a lot of good guys on the team and I mean we came out in force today.”


Milam was named the game MVP after going 1-2 with an RBI single while also picking up the save in the South’s 3-0 win.


“You always want to be recognized for the things you do and you always hope that you can play your best,” Milam said. And I’m happy that I was able to be a part of this.”


Closer Stephen Schoch (UMBC) started the game by virtue of his 0.00 ERA and 29 strikeouts on the year.  Schoch went one inning, striking out one.


“It was just cool to represent the Big Train and show the kind of talent we have,” Schoch said. “We get to show how we play our game compared to how others play theirs.”


James Outman (Sacramento State), Kevin Milam (St. Mary’s), Vinny Esposito (Sacramento State) and Justin Morris (Maryland) all started for the South Division All-Stars. 


Kirk Sidwell (Stetson) provided the offensive fireworks for the South Division All-Stars, blasting a homer to right-center in the bottom of the ninth. On the defensive side Morris caught two runners stealing behind the plate.


“It was definitely a lot of fun too see all the good arms and the good players and stuff like that,” Sidwell said.


AJ Jones (State College of Florida), Ken Waldichuk (St. Mary’s), John Murphy (Maryland) and Milam all pitched in relief. The group combined for four hits and four strikeouts in four innings of work.


The game also provided an opportunity for the Big Train’s best players to show their stuff in front of 27 professional scouts.


“It’s just a good experience because you want to get out in front of as many people as you can,” Schoch said.


Following the All-Star Game the Big Train head into their final 10 games of the season at 23-8 and one game back of the Alexandria Aces in the South Division. They’ll open the stretch against the Baltimore Redbirds Tuesday night at Calvert Hall High School.


First pitch against the Redbirds is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
