Reyes loses his hat during his pitch

Steeplecats pitcher Randy Reyes loses his hat as he pitches against the Bristol Blues during a game at Joe Wolfe Field in North Adams on June 22. Reyes was named an All-NECBL honorable mention selection, and was the only SteepleCat honored.

The North Adams SteepleCats might have won only 11 games in 2022. One member of manager Austin Straub’s squad did, however, earn All-NECBL honors.

Left-handed starter Randy Reyes out of Central Connecticut was named to the Honorable Mention team.

The All-NECBL first, second and Honorable Mention teams were voted on by the league’s 14 field managers.
