Clemson juniors Scott Firth and Richie Shaffer were both named to the Cape Cod League All-Star team, announced last week by Commissioner Paul Galop. Clemson joined Stony Brook as the only two schools to place multiple members on the 25-man team.
Firth, a righthander from Buffalo Grove, IL, was 3-1 with a 1.88 ERA and .218 opponents’ batting average in 43.1 innings pitched over nine starts with Hyannis. He allowed just 32 hits with 33 strikeouts and pitched in the Cape Cod League All-Star game on July 29.
Shaffer, an infielder from Charlotte, NC, hit .263 with 21 runs, 11 doubles, two triples, six homers, 22 RBIs, and 16 walks in 36 games with Chatham. He also hit for the cycle in Chatham’s 10-4 win over Cotuit on June 17 and won the home run derby at Fenway Park prior to the Cape Cod League All-Star game on July 29.
