Baldwin led the 17-11 Comets with a .402 batting average and 31 RBIs. He added six doubles, three home runs and 18 runs scored.
“Caleb had a great year for us,” Caston coach Blake Mollenkopf said. “He’s a very good first baseman and when Corey [Moss] pitched we needed him to shift behind the plate. He played two of the toughest positions on the field and fielded at .981 this year. He did a nice job defensively, and he hit well again, hitting over .400 again with big RBI numbers. He’s a nice baseball player and has been a very, very good one for us over the last four years.”
Tommy Corcoran, RF, Logansport
The senior speedster posted a big senior year for the 17-10 Berries. He hit .333 with a .462 on-base percentage. He led the team in hits (30), triples (3), stolen bases (13) and runs scored (26). He added one home run and eight RBIs from his leadoff spot in the lineup.
“He led our team in hitting. He was a real spark plug,” Logan coach Jim Turner said. “The kids voted him as our MVP. He had an outstanding season, I thought.”
Clayton Frye, 1B/P, Logansport
Frye hit .314 with a team-high four home runs and 21 RBIs for the Berries. He added four doubles and one triple and struck out just eight times in 86 at-bats.
“Clayton is just starting to figure out the hitting part,” Turner said. “I thought he showed power. He’s just beginning to find his potential as a good power hitter. If he’s maybe more selective he’ll put up big numbers next year.”
Frye has been a solid pitcher for the Berries ever since he shut down a strong Harrison team at Steinman Field his freshman campaign in his varsity debut.
Frye went 3-2 with a 2.50 ERA this season. He fanned 24 and walked 11 in 33 2/3 innings pitched.
