July 19, 2013
WASHINGTON - Georgetown University baseball players Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) and Nick Collins (Carthage, N.C./Union Pines) were selected to play in the all-star games for their respective summer league teams.
Collins, who plays for the Alexandria (Va.) Aces, was the starting first baseman and batted cleanup for the South team in the Cal Ripken Collegiate League All-Star game, played Wednesday night at Shirley Povich Field in Bethesda, Md. The South won, 4-1.
Anderson, meanwhile, was selected to play in the New England Collegiate Baseball League All-Star Game, which will be played on Sunday, July 21 at Laconia Field in Laconia, N.H. Anderson was also selected to participate in the game's home run derby.
Anderson, who is playing for the Newport (R.I.) Gulls for the second-straight summer, earned the start at first base this weekend for the Eastern Division All-Stars.
He has enjoyed a standout second season in the NECBL, earning player of the week honors earlier this month and leading the league in runs batted in for three-straight weeks. Through 20 games, Anderson has driven in a league-high 31 runs as he has helped the Gulls to a 20-10 record.
Anderson, who has switched out between first base and designated hitter for the Gulls this season, has nine doubles, one triple, three home runs and 16 walks with a .237 batting average.
After a standout first year on the Hilltop that saw him lead all regulars in batting and appear in 47 games, Collins has continued his torrid hitting during the summer, standing among the league leaders in batting in the Cal Ripken Collegiate League.
Playing, and starting every day at catcher and first base, for the Alexandria (Va.) Aces, Collins has helped the team get off to a 19-12 start to the summer. Collins is batting .321 (35-for-109), with nine doubles, one triple and 22 RBI in 31 games. He is 11th in the league in average and ranks fourth in runs batted in.
