MM 9.30: Maryland baseball shortstop Matt Shaw named Perfect Game Summer Player of the Year

The accolades keep rolling in for Maryland baseball shortstop Matt Shaw, who was named Perfect Game Baseball Summer Player of the Year on Wednesday.

Shaw had an amazing summer for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, considered by most to be the best summer college baseball league in the country. Shaw led the league with an average of .363 and hit five home runs while batting 17 RBIs. He was named the league’s most valuable player. Among his many exploits this summer, Shaw became the first Cape Cod league player to hit for the cycle since 2011.

Maryland’s star shortstop’s summer comes after an incredible spring season for the Terps. Shaw started 60 games for Maryland last season, hitting .290, smashing 22 home runs and making 67 RBIs.

Now a junior, Shaw is looking to continue his stardom for Maryland baseball. His summer is the latest sign of greatness to come.
