Will Miss Game with Minor Injury
ELMIRA, NY -- Shortstop Ryan Normoyle (Mt. Laurel, NJ/Lenape), a rising senior at Washington College, was chosen as a starter for the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League's All-Star Game, to be played in Elmira, NY, tonight at 7:00 p.m. Normoyle, who is playing in the league this summer with the Elmira Pioneers of the West Division, will sit out the game with a pulled hamstring.
Normoyle has started 28 of the Pioneer's 32 games thus far this summer and has come off the bench in another two. He is hitting .328 with a team-best 38 hits and nine stolen bases to go along with 22 runs scored, 16 RBI, and four doubles. He has homered once this summer for the Pioneers and ranks ninth in the league in batting average.
Normoyle hit a Centennial Conference-best .394 as a junior en route to second-team All-Centennial honors (for the second year in a row) and was named to the All Mid-Atlantic region third team by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA). His 56 hits for the Shoremen represent the highest single-season total in school history for any season from which full statistics are available.
An eight team wood-bat league, the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League features top collegiate players from all divisions. Fellow Shoreman John Rolewicz (Bear, DE/Salesianum) is also playing for the Pioneers this summer.
