CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Head Coach Kory Koehler was named the Maynard “Mo” Weber Manager of the Year and four Tom Sox players were named All-Valley League selections on Sunday.

 

Tom Sox All-Valley League Selections

  • HC Kory Koehler – Maynard “Mo” Weber Manager of the Year

  • DH Adam Cecere (Wake Forest) – First Team

  • 1B Wyatt Langford (Florida) – Second Team

  • OF Victor Castillo (FAU) – Second Team

  • SP Christian Worley (Virginia Tech) – Second Team

 

Koehler was named Manager of the Year after guiding the Tom Sox to a 30-10 record in the regular season. The Tom Sox finished 10½ games ahead of second-place Staunton and earned the number one overall seed in the 2021 playoffs. Koehler is the second Charlottesville head coach to earn Manager of the Year honors, joining Corey Hunt in 2017.

 

Adam Cecere burst onto the scene in late June, hitting .471 in his first 11 games. In 21 total games, Cecere has launched four home runs, knocked in 19 RBI, and collected 22 hits. Cecere set the Tom Sox’s single-game total bases record after going 4-for-5 with three runs, three RBI, a double, and two home runs on July 6 at Covington. He collected three RBI in three-straight games (7/5-7/7).

 

Wyatt Langford has been one of the Valley League’s most consistent hitters in 2021, finishing seventh in the league with a .345 average upon the end of the regular season. Langford leads the team in batting average, hits (39), extra-base hits (13), total bases (60), and on-base percentage (.460). His .345 batting average ranks sixth in Tom Sox history, and he ranks second in each of slugging percentage (.531) and on-base percentage. Langford leads the team with ten multi-hit games and just ended his team-high 16-game on-base streak.

 

Victor Castillo played the majority of his season in Covington, batting .313 in 28 games with 21 runs, 10 RBI, 17 walks, and 13 stolen bases. Castillo came to Charlottesville after the cancelation of Covington’s season and kept hitting, with a .389 average, seven hits, six runs, and four RBI in his first six games.

 

Christian Worley was one of the most dominant starters in the Valley League, with a 1.80 ERA in six appearances (four starts). Worley allowed only four earned runs all season and struck out 25 batters. He burst onto the scene in his first game, striking out five batters in two innings in Woodstock. He closed his season with a career-high five innings and nine strikeouts against Waynesboro, helping Charlottesville secure their first July 4 win.

 

Charlottesville’s four All-VBL players are the second-most all-time, behind only 2017 (six). The Tom Sox have had a DH named to one of the two teams in each of the last four seasons, the last three of which have been on the first team.

Wyatt Langford is Charlottesville’s 1st first baseman to make the list.
