Gardiner selected Perfect Game USA All-American

Tuesday, August 26, 2014 - Updated: 8:57 AM

Coming off their history-making 2014 season that saw them win a third straight Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League championship while posting a staggering 40-11 overall record, the Amsterdam Mohawks had two players named Summer Collegiate All-Americans by Perfect Game USA with second baseman Josh Gardiner on the first team and outfielder John Razzino on the second team.

Gardiner, a Radford University product, was a summer All-American for the Mohawks for the second straight year. After hitting .327 in 2013, Gardiner finished second in the PGCBL with a .415 batting average, led the league with a .543 on-base percentage, drove in 29 runs, scored 26 runs and stole 16 bases. For his exploits, Gardiner was named the PGCBL Player of the Year earlier this month.

Razzino, who arrived with the Mohawks from Franklin Pierce University about 10 games into the season, hit .370 with five home runs, 34 runs batted in and 23 stolen bases.

Razzino and Gardiner were two of five PGCBL players named to Perfect Game's All-American list. Watertown Rams closer Jon Escobar was also a second team selection, while Watertown catcher Matt Diorio and Newark Pilots starting pitcher Jayson Yano were named to the third team.
