Cheshire, CT - Cal State Fullerton infielder/outfielder Gary Brown earned a spot on the 2009 Cape Cod Postseason All-League Team team Monday afternoon and was also named the co-most valuable player of his team, the Orleans Firebirds, this afternoon.
Brown posted solid summer numbers for Orleans, hitting a squad best .310 while also leading the team with 39 hits, 25 runs scored and 50 total bases in 33 games. He also belted a pair of home runs, drove in 14 and stole 10 bases for the Birds in 2009.
He joins Duke's Alex Hassan (.289, 33 H, 1 HR, 20 RBI) as the co-recipient of the 2009 Charles F. Moore, Sr. Most Valuable Player Award, announced Tuesday afternoon by the Cheshire, Connecticut-based club.
The soon-to-be Titan junior was also the starting center fielder for the Eastern Division in the Under Armour Cape League All-Star Game held at Fenway Park in Boston back in late July. Brown went 0-for-2 in the game that was shortened by rain.
