Joe Fowler Named MVP of Cal Ripken, Sr. Collegiate Baseball All-Star Game
Retriever rising senior Joe Fowler hit a bases-clearing three-run double in the second inning to give the West All-Stars a lead that they never relinquished, and the West pitching staff combined to shutout the East All-Stars, 6-0, in the Cal Ripken, Sr., Collegiate Baseball League All-Star game on Monday night before 2,406 fans at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.
Fowler's double earned him Most Valuable Player honors. Earlier in the afternoon, Steve Domecus (UC-Santa Barbara) of the Rockville Express bested Fowler in the final round of the second annual Home Run Derby.
Two other Retrievers took part in the third annual game, as pitcher Eddie Bach threw a scoreless inning and incoming transfer Wink Nolan had a pair of at-bats.
