Cesarini was 12-for-23 in the Championship, tied for the most hits on the week, and scored 10 runs while driving in a tournament-high 11. The Archbald, Pennsylvania, native also tied for the tournament lead with five home runs and added three doubles and two stolen bases. He recorded two multi-home run games, hitting two apiece in elimination games against Saint Louis and Richmond, as the Hawks enjoyed their longest stay in the tournament in program history.
DeSanto turned in one of the all-time great starts in Hawk history, tossing a four-hit shutout while striking out a career-high 12 as the Hawks routed top-seeded Saint Louis, 14-0, in an elimination game on Thursday. Hailing from Frederick, Maryland, DeSanto earned a spot on last season's All-Championship Team as well and has tossed 16.0 shutout innings across two career postseason starts, allowing just seven hits and three walks while fanning 17.
Cesarini and DeSanto were joined on the All-Championship Team by Most Outstanding Performer Brandon Eike, William Bean, Nick Cosentino, Christian Gordon, and Eli Weisner from VCU; Jack Arcamone, Phil Bernstein, Jordan Jaffe, and Kyle Roche from Richmond; and George Washington's Michael Foltz.
