As announced by the Central New England Baseball League and voted on by the league coaches, three Big Green players – Sam Chutkow ‘22, Tynan Creagh ‘22 and Ryan McHugh ’23 – earned All-League recognition for their contributions this spring.
This season for the Big Green, Sam had the strongest arm in the outfield, was one of the team’s best hitters, and one of the best pitchers. According to head baseball coach Pat Moriarty, “What sticks out the most about Sam is his ability to stay positive through the good and the bad. He never let himself get to down or too high and always came to the field with a smile on his face. In just one year he has left a memorable mark on our program.”
Tynan was always a, if not the most, reliable and consistent player for the Big Green this season. He has been a mainstay at the top of the lineup and in the outfield for the entirety of his four-year Deerfield career. This season he batted over .300 and led the team in runs scored, stolen bases, and outfield assists. Coach Moriarty shared, “Tynan worked day in and day out to turn himself into one of the best 5 tool outfielders in the NEPSAC.”
On the mound, Ryan led the Big Green in victories with five, and sported a stingy 1.58 ERA. At the plate, he had 21 hits and scored 13 runs. “Ryan was the heart and soul of our team. His approach to the game and overall care for others is second to none.” said Coach Moriarty
This season, the Big Green varsity baseball team posted an 11-9 overall record which included a six-game winning streak from April 23 to May 7, 2022. Furthermore, the team advanced to the post-season. The Big Green earned a bye to the semifinal round of the Central New England Baseball playoffs. In the semifinals, the Doors defeated Exeter to advance to the finals before falling by only a run to Andover. It was an impressive season for the Big Green!
