Edman named to all-star game; Quantrill tosses perfect inning


Stanford sophomore infielder Tommy Edman was named to the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) South All-Star team, the league announced Sunday. Edman, a member of the Newport Gulls, will start at shortstop for the South squad.

The 21st NECBL All-Star Game will be held this Sunday at MacKenzie Stadium, the home of the Valley Blue Sox, in Holyoke, Mass. First pitch is slated for 5:05 p.m. after a skills competition and home run derby in the afternoon.

Edman leads Newport in hitting, having gone 26-for-76 (.342) as of July 14. The switch-hitter has hit four home runs, has driven in 12 and struck out just six times in 17 games. Edman also leads the team with six stolen bases.

Edman is the second current Cardinal player to be named a starter in his respective summer league all-star game, joining pitcher Cal Quantrill of the Coastal Plain League's Morehead City Marlins.

Quantrill was the starting for the East in Monday's all-star game at Big Rock Stadium in Morehead City, N.C. Quantrill faced three batters, striking out two, in his only inning of work. The West went on to post a 7-5 victory.

The Coastal Plain League is the nation's hottest summer collegiate baseball league. Celebrating its 18th season in 2014, the CPL features 14 teams playing North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. The CPL gives college players the chance to refine their skills with the use of wooden bats. Players are housed with local host families for the summer.


Stanford senior wide receiver Ty Montgomery has been named to the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, which recognizes the outstanding receiver in college football. The award is presented by the the Tallahassee Quarterback Club Foundation, Inc.

The award recipient is selected by a 221-member selection committee and will be presented live on December 11, 2014, on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show. College and Pro Football Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff will announce the 2014 winner on the show.

Ten Biletnikoff Award semifinalists will be announced November 17 and three finalists will be declared November 24.

Montgomery has previously been named to watch lists for the Maxwell Award (player of the year) and the Hornung Award (most versatile).

Montgomery is already well-versed in major awards. Following an electrifying 2013 season, he was a consensus All-America selection and received the Johnny "The Jet" Rodgers Award as the national return specialist of the year.
