Without an awards banquet for the 2020 season due to ongoing restrictions in effect because of COVID-19, the Yawkey League will be making a series of announcements in the upcoming week to announce the winners of its yearly awards.
The first awards announcement is the 2020 All-Rookie Team. The All-Rookie Team consists of one rookie from each team. The players on the All-Rookie Team represent the nominees for Rookie of the Year which will be announced later in the week.
Every season introduces a new group of players to the league. These rookies come to the league with various levels of playing experience. While some players come to league straight from high school, most are current or former college players.
Players on the 2020 All-Rookie Team are current or former players from Assumption, Bentley, Eastern Nazarene, Emerson, Mitchell and Wentworth.
Led by playoff MVP Scott Hall, the East Boston Expos beat the Charlestown Townies 1-0 in Game 5 to capture the 2020 Yawkey League Championship.
East Boston took the early 2-0 league in the series winning games one and two. Charlestown would force the deciding game five winning games three and four.
Game 5 would feature some outstanding pitching from both teams and Scott Hall took the mound for East Boston and Billy Sullivan took the mound for Charlestown. East Boston took an early 1-0 lead that would prove to be the final.
Scott Hall of East Boston was named playoff MVP. Throughout the playoffs Hall would win 3 games including the decisive Game 5 of the finals. In his three starts Hall would post a 1.05 ERA over 20 innings.
Congratulations to Branden Anderson all of the East Boston Expos.
