The Northwest League selected AquaSox pitcher Shawn Nottingham and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera to its 2004 All Star team, NWL president Bob Richmond announced today. The All Star Team is selected annually at the end of the season, spotlighting those players who best represented their position during the year.

Shawn Nottingham owns the league’s best record at 9-2. The southpaw starter out of Massillon, Ohio, was the Seattle Mariners 13th pick in the 2003 draft. With 79 strikeouts, Nottingham currently holds the lead in the league. He’s also first in innings pitched with 80.0 innings of work. Nottingham has struck out 12 batters in a game twice; first on July 18 against the Eugene Emeralds in a 7-5 win, and then on Aug. 20 in a 6-1 victory versus the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes. Nottingham was chosen to pitch in the 2004 NWL in early August, but was not able to participate.

Asdrubal Cabrera, a non-drafted free agent who signed with the Seattle Mariners in 2002, is the NWL’s All-Star shortstop. Cabrera has played solid defense for the AquaSox in the shortstop position and is currently batting .271 (59x218) with 39 RBI. The switch-hitter from Venezuela is in the league’s top-ten in doubles with 16. He’s had three 4-RBI games this season. Cabrera was also selected to play in the NWL All-Star Game this August, but was unable to participate.
