SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Trinity Tigers rising senior Christian Muscarello will be the Eastern Division starting shortstop in the New England Collegiate Baseball League's All-Star Game.
The 20th NECBL All-Star Game will be held at 5:30 p.m. EDT on Sunday, July 21 at Robbie Mills Field in Laconia, N.H. The league showcases the top talent of college baseball from throughout the nation.
This summer, Muscarello is a member of the Ocean State Waves, of South Kingstown, R.I. He is currently fourth in the league in batting, with a .355 average.
Muscarello led the Tigers in runs scored last season, with 52. He batted .377 (69-183), and accounted for 35 RBI, three home runs, and 11 doubles.
He was elected to the All-Region Teams of D3baseball.com and the American Baseball Coaches Association, along with the All-Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Team.
The Tigers, with Head Coach Tim Scannell, completed the season with a 40-9 record, which established a school mark for victories in a season. Coach Scannell was elected SCAC Co-Coach of the Year. It was the fourth straight time he attained the conference's highest honor, and a SCAC-best eighth overall.
Trinity won a seventh SCAC Championship with Coach Scannell's leadership. The Tigers advanced to the NCAA Division III playoffs for the fourth straight year, and came within one game of a trip to the DIII College World Series - losing to eventual champion, Linfield College. It marked the fifth time the Tigers competed in the Regional final.
