Three Cards Named to All-Star Baseball Team
PATCHOGUE, N.Y. (May 24, 2010) – Three Plattsburgh State players -- Tory Bouyea, Pat Shaughnessy and Dan Tracy -- have been selected to the Rawlings/American Baseball Coaches' Association All-New York Region Second Team.
Bouyea, a junior shortstop out of Plattsburgh High School, led the Cardinals in batting
with a .392 average, to go along with 10 doubles and 38 runs batted in. He set school
single-season records for at-bats (158), runs scored (48) and hits (62) en route to
All-State University of New York Athletic Conference First Team accolades. A SUNYAC
All-Tournament performer, he also became the 10th player in school history to reach
the 100-hit plateau.
A sophomore second baseman from Plattsburgh High, Shaughnessy hit for a career-high .367 average, tied a school record with six home runs and set another with 86 total bases. The first-team All-SUNYAC choice led the club in slugging percentage (.619) and on-base percentage (.461). He drove in 37 runs and scored 46 times himself.
Tracy, a sophomore right-handed pitcher out of Somers High, led the SUNYAC with nine wins (9-0) while setting the Plattsburgh record for season victories. He also tied the all-time mark of 14 wins that was originally established 41 years ago. He posted a 4.43 earned-run average and opponents hit .282 against him.
Plattsburgh had its best season ever at 30-10 for a .750 winning percentage and was ranked in the national coaches' poll, peaking at No. 18, for the most of the time. The Cardinals also enjoyed the highest NCAA regional ranking -- at No. 2 -- in program history.
The 2005 and 2007 Plattsburgh squads also produced three Cardinals on the all-region team.
