The accolades continue to roll in for Maryland baseball shortstop Matt Shaw, who was named the Perfect Game Baseball Summer Player of the Year on Wednesday.

Shaw had an incredible summer for the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, considered by most to be the best summer collegiate baseball league in the country. Shaw led the league with a .363 average and hit five home runs while driving in 17 RBIs. He was named the league’s most valuable player. Among his many feats this summer, Shaw became the first player in the Cape Cod league to hit for the cycle since 2011.

Maryland’s star shortstop’s summer comes after an incredible spring season for the Terps. Shaw started 60 games for Maryland last season, hitting .290, mashing 22 homers and driving in 67 RBIs.

Now a junior, Shaw looks to continue his stardom for Maryland baseball. His summer is the latest sign of greatness to come.
