Four players from the 2015 PGCBL season have been named to the Perfect Game Summer Collegiate All-American teams.
 
Second Team
 
Kyano Cummings, SP, Elmira
 
Co-Pitcher of the Year Kyano Cummings is named to the second team after finishing in the top five in all three pitching Triple Crown categories, garnering five wins (tied for third), posting a 1.69 ERA (fourth) and tying the PGCBL strikeout record with 74. The 74 strikeouts were 18 more than the next closest pitcher. Opponents hit just .198 off the southpaw and he posted a 1.07 WHIP. Cummings struck out at least seven batters in every regular season start in which he tossed at least five innings, including two 10-strikeout games.
 
Third Team
 
Troy Scocca, OF, Mohawk Valley
 
Troy Scocca, the anchor of a Mohawk Valley lineup that led the DiamondDawgs to their first PGCBL championship, has been named a third team All-American. Scocca led the league with 40 RBIs and hit six home runs (tied for the third-most in the league). The Fairfield product hit .335 on the summer with a .965 OPS and “created” the second-most runs in the league with 36.984. Scocca also tied a PGCBL record with six triples. In Mohawk Valley’s six games en route to its championship, Scocca hit .348 with six RBIs.
 
Anthony Herrera, UTL, Mohawk Valley
 
Anthony Herrera almost single-handedly led Mohawk Valley to the championship. In a decisive third game of the East Championship Series, the right-hander fired five innings of one-run ball in relief to get the win and he notched two saves in the PGCBL Championship Series against Victor, including 2.1 scoreless in the clinching game. During the regular season, Herrera did not allow an earned run and just allowed one run total in 16 appearances. He was named second team All-PGCBL. At the plate, Herrera hit just below .300 with three home runs, 21 RBIs and four stolen bases. In the final nine games of the season in which he had an at-bat, including the postseason, Herrera had a hit, including six extra-base hits.
 
Honorable Mention
 
Christian Santisteban, 1B, Elmira
 
PGCBL Player of the Year Christian Santisteban has been named an honorable mention All-American. Santisteban led the Elmira Pioneers to their first West Division title as he hit .377 with six home runs and 38 RBIs. The Miami native finished second in the league in batting and tied for second in RBIs, while finishing tied for third with his six home runs. Outside of the Triple Crown categories, Santisteban scored 41 times (third in the league) and led the PGCBL with 58 hits and 43 walks. He also led the league in OPS at 1.123, which was boosted by a .532 on-base percentage that trails only 2014 Player of the Year Josh Gardiner’s mark of .543 as the highest in PGCBL history.
