Postseason Recap: The Allentown Railers did it again. For the third straight season, the Railers claimed the ACBL title, becoming just the third program to accomplish that feat in league history. The Railers rode lights-out pitching to sweep a title-clinching doubleheader against the Quakertown Blazers. Righthander Rhett Jacoby (Moravian, Pa.) struck out nine and allowed just two runs in a complete-game effort in Game 1, and John Yocum (Rider) allowed just one hit in the nightcap to lead the Railers to victory.

1. Levi Stoudt, RHP, Quakertown (So., Lehigh)

At 6-foot-1 and 180 pounds, Stoudt has a smooth, effortless delivery, producing a fastball that sits 91-93 mph and can reach up to 95. Stoudt also flashes an above-average slider in the low 80s, while also showing feel for a changeup, giving him enough variance to potentially profile as a starter. As a freshman at Lehigh in 2017, Stoudt posted the second-lowest ERA (2.34) in the Patriot League and earned an all-conference selection. He only pitched 29.2 innings this summer; Stoudt struck out 28 hitters and walked nine during his time with Quakertown.
