PHILADELPHIA - Senior catcher Will Davis and fellow classmate Jeremy Maas were honored by the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League as all-league selections as announced by the league on Friday afternoon.
Davis was named to the first team, while Maas was a second-team selection. Both played in the league's all-star game earlier in the summer and were some of the top offensive players in the eight-team league.
A member of the Alexandria Aces, Davis finished in the top six in six statistical categories. The catcher led tied for the league lead in home runs (4) while finishing fourth in RBI (25), fifth in slugging percentage (.470) and sixth in both hits (47) and doubles (9). Davis also batted .315 and caught the Cal Ripken Collegiate Baseball League's Most Outstanding Pitcher, Max Knowles.
Maas played in the outfield for the Herndon Braves during the summer, finishing in the top ten in four statistical categories. Maas hit .311 and slugged .422 while leading the entire league with 50 hits. He also scored 25 runs, doubled 12 times and homered twice.
The two seniors return to a Penn squad which brings back 14 letterwinners in 2011, including four starting pitchers and six defensive starters on a team which played for the Lou Gerhig division title on the final weekend of the 2010 season.
