Montville Receives Gatorade Player of the Year
For the second consecutive year, Gatorade has decided that Portsmouth High first baseman Mike Montville is New Hampshire's best high school baseball player. On Wednesday it was announced that Montville has won the 2010 Gatorade New Hampshire Baseball Player of the Year.
Also, Goffstown shortstop Riley Palmer has won the Class L Baseball Player of the Year award.
Montville (pictured above) has helped lead the Clippers to 59 straight wins. He has been the state's most feared hitter for the past 2 seasons. He has a full ride to play baseball at the University of Maryland next season.
Palmer is likely the the state's best shortstop. He has been a key member of a Grizzlies team that won 16 regular season games. Palmer is an outstanding hitter, and has a good combination of size and quickness that is rare at his position.
