2008 Monarchs All-Stars Announced!!!!

Kenny Smith

Starting Pitcher

 IP: 51ERA: 2.47SO: 83W-L: 3-3 

Notes: Easily the Monarchs MVP and Rookie of the Year of 2008, the 19 year-old lefty dominated the WRWBL with his 85 mph fastball. In 51 innings of work he recorded a staggering 83 strikeouts and two 14 strikeout games during the season. With more run support and a better start to the season Kenny would undoubtedly be a candidate for the league CY Young award, but will certainly be a candidate for WRWBL Rookie of the Year. Kenny pitches for Division III SUNY Oneonta and is teammates with Monarchs centerfielder Luke Thornton.


Luke Thornton



AVE: .349

SLG: .453

OBP: .378

RBIs: 15

Runs: 13


Notes: In his 2nd season in the league and 1st all-star appearance, Luke quickly became a leader for the Monarchs by his play on the field. A Comeback Player of the Year candidate, Luke led the Monarchs in RBIs, Runs, doubles, and stolen bases. Other than is stellar bat, his play defensively in centerfield lends a consideration for a Gold Glove award. Luke compiled 4 outfield assists and made sure teams knew he wasn’t someone to take any chance of running on. Luke also plays for Division III SUNY Oneonta and is teammates with Monarchs pitcher Kenny Smith.


Andrew Rosario



AVE: .353

SLG: .569

OBP: .441

RBIs: 12

Runs: 9


Notes: In his 1st season in the league, Andrew made a huge impact offensively and defensively. In only 17 games he had 12 RBIs and led the team with 3 triples. Andrew also played a gold glove caliber 1st base and solid 2nd base whenever called upon. After joining the team in June, he quickly became a clubhouse favorite with his consistent hitting and attendance at games. Andrew plays for Division III CUNY Lehman and is teammates with Monarchs catcher Gilbert Garcia.


Gilbert Garcia



AVE: .421

SLG: .789

OBP: .476

Runs: 10


Notes: In his 1st season in the league, Gilbert gave the Monarchs a big power bat they sorely needed at cleanup. In only 12 games, Gil had 4 doubles, 2 triples, 10 runs, 6 RBIs and led the team in average, slugging, and OBP. He also changed the game defensively by throwing out 4 base runners in 13 attempts with his rocket arm behind the plate. Gil became a pitchers best friend and opposing base runners worst enemy. Gil plays for Division III CUNY Lehman and is teammates with Monarchs infielder Andrew Rosario.


Max Pachner



AVE: .286

OBP: .368

RBIs: 9

Runs: 9


Notes: In his 1st season in the league, Max was the Monarchs leadoff because of his ability to take pitches, and steal bases. Max led the team in walks and was a vocal leader on the field and in the dugout. Probably Max’s biggest contribution was his play shortstop. He made great plays all year and helped turn 9 double plays defensively. 


Richard Alicea (alternate)



AVE: .309

OBP: .333


Notes: In his 1st season in the league, Richard was one of the most consistent hitters for the Monarchs all season. Another well liked player by his teammates, Richard helped bolster the bottom of the order hitting mainly from the 6 spot and filled in nicely as part-time catcher.
