Mohawks All-Decade Team

By Jon Sargalis
In a decade that saw the Mohawks win 6 championships, we've had had some exceptionally talented players in the past 10 years. These are the best players at each position in the 2010s.
Starting Pitcher: Chandler Shepherd (Kentucky-2012) 
Every start was an event when Chandler Shepherd took the mound as the ace of a very talented pitching staff in 2012 and was the winning pitcher in the championship clinching game. Including playoffs, he was 9-0 in 10 appearances with a 1.73 ERA in 67.2 innings with 64 strikeouts and 13 walks. He was named the PGCBL Pitcher of the Year in 2012 and is currently pitching for the Baltimore Orioles.

Abram is the Mohawks All-Time Saves leader as he recorded 21 in his 2 years as the Mohawks closer. In 2010, Abram was unhittable as he allowed just 1 run all season in 18 appearances with 11 saves. He pitched 23.1 innings with a 0.39 ERA, 30 strikeouts, 2 walks and held opposing hitters to a .127 average. In 2011, Abram recorded 10 saves with a 2.42 ERA and 29 strikeouts in 22.1 innings. In total, Williams had a 1.38 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 45.2 innings as hitters constantly swung over his devastating breaking ball in the 9th inning.
Catcher: Joe Genord (South Florida-2016, 2018) 
Joe is the Mohawks Home Run King and an RBI machine. The 2016 PGCBL MVP led the Mohawks to a championship in 2016 and nearly another one in 2018. Combining both regular season and playoff numbers for his 2 seasons, Joe hit .301 in 97 games with 20 home runs, 26 doubles, 100 RBI and 67 runs scored.
