2007 Season Review
(31-12-1 – 1st in East)
(Eliminated Chatham, 2 wins to 0, in Divisional Series)
(Defeated Falmouth, 2 wins to 0, for Arnold Mycock Trophy in Championship Series)
SOUTH YARMOUTH, Mass. -- The Yarmouth Dennis Red Sox capped another successful campaign in 2007 with their second Cape Cod Baseball League Championship in a row and their third in four years.
After finishing the season with a best-in-the-league 31-12-1 record, the Red Sox cruised through the post-season, sweeping Chatham in two games in the Divisional Series and repeating that feat against the Falmouth Commodores in the Championship Series to take home the Arnold Mycock Championship Trophy.
Yarmouth-Dennis started the season with a six-game win streak and never looked back. The Red Sox led the CCBL with a .278 team batting average and their pitching staff was No. 2 in the league with an ERA of 2.82.
Several individuals enjoyed excellent seasons and several were honored for their achievements with league awards. Field manager Scott Pickler was named the 2007 Manager of the Year and Nick Cassavechia (Baylor) was named Relief Pitcher of the Year after leading the league with 11 saves.
Terry Doyle (Boston College) tied for the league lead in wins with six, shortstop Gordon Beckham (Georgia) was the league’s home run king with nine and also tied for the RBI crown with 35. First baseman Sean Ochinko (Louisiana State) nearly caught Beckham in the home run race, finishing with eight.
Pitcher Trevor Holder (Georgia), who dominated Commodore hitters in the title-clinching victory, was named Playoff MVP. Holder worked eight innings, allowing just one earned run and striking out 10.
