Cecchini Named All-Star
Binghamton Mets shortstop Gavin Cecchini has been named to the Eastern League All-Star Team. He will play for the Eastern Division in the All-Star Classic in Portland, Maine on Wednesday, July 15. Cecchini joins four other B-Mets who garnered All-Star honors. Earlier in the week Brandon Nimmo, Josh Rodriguez, Luis Cessa and Paul Sewald were named All-Stars.
Cecchini was the New York Mets first overall pick in the 2012 draft. He is batting .279 with five home runs and has 30 RBI. He was part of the B-Mets Championship team when he joined the B-Mets late last season. He scored the winning run to clinch the title for Binghamton at NYSEG Stadium last September.
