Kyle Kempf, Peninsula (Southern Indiana)
Kempf, a red-shirt sophomore at Southern Indiana, ended the regular season on a tear batting .600 in five games for the Pilots. The 2014 CPL All-Star drove in four runs with one double and seven total bases for a .700 slugging percentage while also terrorizing the base paths, stealing five bases in six tries and scoring four runs of his own. Kempf finished the regular season with a .296 batting average, seven doubles, two triples, three home runs and 26 RBIs.
Quinn Atwood, Wilson (Texas State)
With the playoffs on the line, Atwood had his best game of the season on the mound. The sophomore from Texas State did not allow a hit until the final inning of the first game of a double-header with Wilmington when the Sharks’ Nate Moorhouse ended Atwood’s no-hit bid with a double. Atwood finished off the seven-inning complete game shutout without allowing another hit and striking out two for a .048 opponent’s batting average.
