Mazeika Named Mets Org All-Star

MazeikaThe latest Valley League alumni named to an organization all-star team is Patrick Mazeika (Waynesboro 2013), who was named the New York Mets’ all-star catcher!

The article on milb.com, written by Robert Emrich, had this to say about Patrick:

An eighth-round pick out of Florida’s Stetson University — the same school that yielded Mets hurler Jacob deGrom — Mazeika made a big impact on the Appalachian League, finishing second in the circuit with a .354 batting average, second with 48 RBIs, third with a .991 OPS and pacing the league with 27 doubles. Not a bad opening act for the 22-year-old backstop.

“We really liked him as an offensive player, especially as a left-handed hitter,” vice president of player development and scouting Paul DePodesta said. “He’s just hit everywhere he’s been. It was certainly a very encouraging start to his pro career.”

Indeed it was. If Patrick’s defensive skills are good enough, and he keeps hitting like this, he will move up the chain quickly!
