SOUTH YARMOUTH ---- For the second straight year, the John Claffey New England Top Prospect Award belongs to a Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox player.
This year, the honor went to Matt Watson (Boston College) of Portland, Maine. Primarily a catcher, he also spent time at first base, designated hitter and in the outfield. The award was won last year by Watson’s BC teammate, Mickey Wiswall.
Watson played 40 games for the Red Sox in the regular season, batting .239. He picked up his power numbers toward the end of the year, finishing with four home runs and 21 RBI. His best game came on July 25 at Hyannis, when he hit two homers and drove in six runs.
