Class of 2012 consistent hitter Thomas Carruthers was named Blue Wave baseball MVP for last season at the team banquet recently.

Tapped for the honor at the Country Club of Darien, the captain, shortstop and pitcher batted .404 last spring knocking in nine runs, scoring 18 and connecting for a homer.

Carruthers will be attending Southern Methodist University (SMU) in the fall.

Coach Mike Scott announced captains for the 2013 season at the event with Andrew Maley, a first baseman, and pitcher Mackenzie Glavin named.
