York players named to the All-MAC Commonwealth Second Team were pitcher AJ Vincenzi and first baseman Jack Barry. Outfielder Andrew Santarpia was an honorable-mention pick.

Barry finished among the top five in the Commonwealth with his 42 RBIs, 14 doubles, nine home runs and six sacrifice flies, while Santarpia also ranked among the top five in doubles with 12.

Vincenzi, a right-hander, ranked among the top five in the Commonwealth in ERA (3.65), opponent batting average (.227), innings pitched (74.0), strikeouts (55), wins (six) and saves (three). In regular-season conference play, Vincenzi ranked third in the Commonwealth with a 1.48 ERA and fourth with a .185 opponent batting average.

Denlinger closes out his Spartan career as a three-time all-conference selection with two first-team selections. Barry and Capobianco both cap off their careers as two-time All-MAC Commonwealth selections.

The all-conference selections helped lead York to the top of the charts in several statistical categories in the Commonwealth this season, including doubles (104), homers (56), RBIs (347), total bases (759), fielding percentage (.960) and runners caught stealing (24). York also led Commonwealth with 24 home runs and a team ERA of 3.86 in regular-season conference games. The Spartans finished 24-19 overall and 11-5 in the conference.
