CdM duo on first team

Corona del Mar High senior pitcher Andrew McCormack and senior catcher Brent Lawson made the first-team All-Pacific Coast League after leading the baseball team back to the CIF Southern Section postseason after the Sea Kings missed it in 2011.

McCormack and Lawson helped CdM (16-12, 8-7 in league) finish third in an ultra-competitive league and get out of the wild-card round of the Division 3 playoffs.

McCormack, a right-hander bound for Stanford, produced on the mound and in the batter's box. He also made All-CIF Southern Section Division 3 team and started on the mound in the Kiwanis Club of Greater Anaheim's 45th annual Orange County North-South All-Star Game for seniors at Glover Stadium and in the Ryan Lemmon Showcase between the Pacific Coast League and Freeway League.

McCormack went 8-3 with a 1.57 earned-run average, striking out 37 batters in 71 1/3 innings of work. He tossed five complete games, almost going the distance in half of his 11 starts.

As a hitter, McCormack, batted a team-best .375 and drove in 22 runs, tying him for first.

He had five doubles, drew 11 walks and only struck out a half dozen times in 95 plate appearances. He had .436 on-base percentage and .438 slugging percentage, both team bests.

Lawson, bound for Yale, led the Sea Kings with four home runs.

He drove in 20 runs with six doubles and one triple, scored 22 runs and was eight for eight in stolen-base attempts.

CdM junior third baseman Hunter Heckendorn made the second team.

Max Stone, a junior second baseman, was an honorable mention.
