Thanks to everyone who voted in our Westchester/Putnam and Rockland all-star polls in the past week. We received thousands and thousands of votes, but now the polls have closed and all we can do is wait for Sunday when all of the all-star announcements will be made in Sunday’s paper. That includes player of the year for both counties, coach of the year, first-team, second-team, honorable mention, and of course, the fan-selected teams.
It probably goes without saying that our actual all-star teams will look much different from the ones that you all selected, and of course, my feeling is that the guys I’m picking are the ones that truly had the best seasons. I’ll have capsules with stats and information on all of the first-teamers, but there were some very difficult decisions. Those of you who have followed me over the years know that I tend to favor the guys who contribute in several facets of the game and I was shocked by how many players fit that criteria this year. So many good players to choose from, and only two more days until we find out who made the cut…
I hope everyone has a great weekend, and be sure to pick up a copy of The Journal News on Sunday! (I’ll also post all of the all-stars on lohud.com and right here on the blog.)
