Boster, starting his junior season at Marshall, posted a summer ERA of 0.74 with a 5-2 record in 60.1 innings pitched. Boster averaged a strikeout per inning, fanning 60 on the season.
Stanley, a redshirt senior with the Herd, nabbed ten saves in 18.1 innings this summer, boasting a 0.00 ERA and nabbing 22 strikeouts over the prospect summer.
Boster and Stanley played with the Prospect League’s West Virginia Miners (38-22).
“It feels great to receive an award like this,” Boster said. “Kolin and I worked very hard throughout the whole summer and constantly pushed one another to get better. I hope that this fall, all of that just carries over.”
Stanley agreed with his teammate, noting this was his third summer with the Miners.
“I couldn’t be more happy with my experience this summer,” Stanley said. “I was able to continue playing for a great organization in the WV Miners and I couldn’t be happier with the contributions I was able to make. I am greatly honored and humbled to be on that list.”
Second-year pitching coach Josh Newman spoke highly of his two hurlers.
“Chase and Kolin have both brought championship effort throughout the entire summer and it has paid off,” Newman said. “They achieved a tremendous accomplishment and this should propel them for an awesome 2015 season. I am grateful for both of them continuing to raise the bar for this baseball program both on and off the field.”
Boster and Stanley were two of the four Conference USA members named to the list.
