Stanford junior left-hander Kris Bubic was named the Cape Cod Baseball League Pitcher of the Year, widely known as the nation's premier collegiate summer league.
Bubic stared for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox. He was the Eastern Division's starting pitcher in the 2017 Cape League All-Star Game in July and fired a 1-2-3 bottom of the first inning. For the summer, Bubic went 4-1 with a 1.65 ERA while striking out 41 in 32.2 innings in the regular CCBL season. Opponents hit just .198 off Bubic.
For the Cardinal last season, Bubic was the team's Friday night starter and finished sixth in the Pac-12 in ERA (2.79) and strikeouts (96). A Mitty High grad, he was named honorable mention Academic All-Pac-12 selection, Bubic was second on the team with seven wins and 90 1/3 innings pitched. He capped the season with a career-high eight innings and 11 strikeouts in a Regional win over Sacramento State on June 1.
Palo Alto resident Hunter Bishop, a freshman at Arizona State, was named Pointstreak Playoff MVP by the Cape Cod Baseball League.
Bishop, who attended Serra High, hit a key home run in the sixth inning of Game 3 to give Brewster a 2-0 lead, and his three home runs in the playoffs were the most by any Cape League player. Bishop had only one home run in 104 regular-season at bats before providing the pop for the Whitecaps in the postseason.
Bishop shared the award with Maryland's Nick Dunn.
