LHP Guilliame Blanchette our first-ever unanimous choice. 

LHP Guilliame Blanchette our first-ever unanimous choice. 

 

By Bob Elliott
Canadian Baseball Network

There is always something happening in baseball you have never seen before.

Take voting for our 17th annual Canadian Baseball Network all-Canadian college team. 

It works like this: the players play, we compile the stats, send out a ballot, the voters vote and we tally up the winners at each position and the guy with the most votes is the Canadian Baseball Network college player of the year.

OF Marcus Knecht (North York, Ont.) of the Connors State College Cowboys had the strongest showing getting 49 of 51 first-place votes (96.1) in 2010.

And this year’s player of the year is LHP Guillaume Blanchette (St-Constant, Que.) of the Lubbock Christian Chaparrals. Blanchette pitched a shut out? Or did he bat 1.000? Either way he was perfect with the electoral college receiving 51 of 51 first-place votes.

He was 12-2 with a 1.73 ERA in 18 games making 12 starts. He walked 22 and fanned 108 in 144 innings while holding opponents to a .210 average.

Was Blanchette that good or was it a bad spring for lefties? Probably some of each, but consider this year for example we had 174 players. Let’s say maybe an average 150 players a year? That would be roughly 2,550 players with an average of 45 voters per year. 

And no one has ever run the table like Blanchette, who finished ahead of LHP Dylan Thorp (North Vancouver, BC) of Monterrey Peninsula College.  

Blanchette earned National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-America First Team honours. He also received D2CCA and ABCA All-South Central Region Pitcher of the Year (First Team All-Region in each of those organization’s All Region Teams), NCBWA All-South Central Region First Team and Heartland Conference Pitcher of the Year honours. 

He led LCU and the conference in wins (second nationally). He also led the Heartland in strikeouts (ninth nationally), innings pitched, complete games (eight, fifth nationally) and shutouts (two). He sat second in the conference (eighth nationally) in ERA. The Chaps senior was named the NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week after dealing a one-hitter in a win over No. 9 Angelo State and was twice Pitcher of the Week. He earned Gold Glove honours and was a CoSIDA Academic All-District recipient.

Our voters included … 13 Canadian Baseball Network staffers, 11 coaches, from elite programs to colleges on both sides of the border; eight more who write baseball, seven scouts, seven suits (executives, front-office staff), two broadcasters, two former players and one crack copy editor who root-root-roots for old Notre Dame.

Our electorate came from eight different provinces and six states. Voting was done on a 5-3-1 basis.

We should point out that the ballot gathering process moved a lot quicker this year thanks to the efforts of Kevin Wall (Richmond Hill, Ont.) also known as Jason Bourne, for his magical ways of gathering all the numbers. 

And as usual IF you failed to turn in your ballot you have lost your right to complain.

This year Quebec players dominated the first team with Blanchette leading a six-player contingent. The rest of the team was made up of two players each from BC and Ontario and one each from Alberta and New Brunswick.

There are the best of the 787 Canadian players playing the majority of their schedules south of the border.
