Three named summer All-Americans

08/28/2016 10:45 AM -

Three Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League players this year have been named summer collegiate All-Americans by Perfect Game USA.

Chris Kwitzer of the Glens Falls Dragons, Cameron Enck of the Amsterdam Mohawks and Joe Genord of the Amsterdam Mohawks were named All-Americans with Kwitzer and Enck on the first team and Genord on the second team. 

"We are happy that Perfect Game honored three of our best players. It is hard to stand out when there are so many quality players in the PGCBL. Joe, Chris and Cameron were selected PGCBL All-League players for their outstanding seasons. I’ll look for all three of them to be drafted and playing pro ball in the near future,” said PGCBL President Jeff Kunion. 

Kwitzer was named to the first team as the designated hitter. He was named to the PGCBL All-League team for the second straight year. He hit .352 with four home runs and 26 RBIs and was also named a starter in the All-Star Game. The lefty slugger had an OPS of 1.016 and also stole two bases. Kwitzer was also named to the All-League Team last year as a third baseman for the Adirondack Trail Blazers.

Enck set a new PGCBL record with a 0.39 ERA this season. He finished the summer with a 5-1 record for Amsterdam with 24 strikeouts in 46 innings. The right-hander had a 1.07 WHIP and opponents hit just .231 off him. Enck really buckled down during the rare occurrence of runners getting in scoring position as opponents hit .162 off him in those situations. He went 2-0 with a 1.38 ERA during the postseason.

Genord, the PGCBL Player of the Year, hit .296 on the season and led the league with seven home runs and a PGCBL record 45 RBIs. He stole five bases, drew 30 walks and anchored a lineup that led Amsterdam to its fourth championship in five years. His .942 OPS was in the top five of the league among qualifiers. The South Florida product’s 32.967 Runs Created led the league and his SECA (secondary average) of .447 was also among the league leaders.
