Younger Cohoes named MVP of German tourney
Published: October 6, 2010
Crew Cohoes, 11-year-old brother of European D-I champion Patch’s All-Europe shortstop Cavan Cohoes, was named MVP of the German national championship tournament on Sunday in Berlin, his father, Chris, wrote in an E-mail to Stars and Stripes on Monday. Crew, a pitcher-shortstop-catcher, won the award after leading the Stuttgart Reds to the national championship for 10-12-year-olds.
The Reds, who had never before even qualified for the national tournament, won all four of their five-inning games in Berlin, including Sunday’s 16-6 championship-game victory, the elder Cohoes reported.
Because he is a foreigner, Crew Cohoes was limited by the rules to just two innings of work in each pitching appearance. Playing shortstop the rest of the time, Cohoes pitched the final two innings each of Saturday’s semifinal and Sunday’s championship games, the elder Cohoes reported. Crew’s lone American teammate, pitcher-first baseman Sam Count, posted a strong outing, the elder Cohoes wrote, in pitching the Reds into the semifinals.
