COACH OF THE YEAR
Rob Garry, Mahtomedi
The first-year coach led the Zephyrs to the first state championship in school history. Mahtomedi (21-4) was nearly flawless in the Class 3A state tournament, committing one error and allowing just three runs in 21 innings.
Player of the Year
Seth Halvorsen, INF, Heritage Christian (Maple Grove), 6-2/200, Sr.
Halvorsen capped his career in historic fashion, tossing a shutout in the Class 1A championship game, striking out 16 and hitting two home runs at Target Field, home field of the Minnesota Twins. The Mr. Baseball winner went 7-1 with a 0.92 ERA and 117 strikeouts, while batting .422 with 25 RBI, and was drafted by the Twins, though he’s expected to play at Missouri next year.
