Brewster Whitecaps Take Home the Arnold Mycock Award and Championship Title

This year the Arnold Mycock Award and Championship title goes to the Brewster Whitecaps. The Whitecaps defeated the Bourne Braves in an action-packed three game series, winning 2-0 in the final tie-breaking game on Sunday.

Arnold Mycock was a long-time CCBL volunteer who dedicated himself to the CCBL for 67 years. The Massachusetts resident, or “Mr. Cotuit Kettleer” as he was often called, began volunteering for the Kettleers when he moved to Cotuit in 1950. He wore many hats within the organization and quickly became General Manager later that year. He remained general manager for 44 years, racking up 770 wins and 12 Championship titles.

After stepping down as GM, Mycock also served in numerous roles within the Cape League, such as Vice President and Treasurer, and is credited with helping modernize the league into what it is today. The league Championship trophy was named after Mycock in 2000, which is the same year he was added as an inaugural member of the CCBL Hall of Fame. Mycock passed away in 2016 at the age of 92, but his legacy is still alive through the standards he set as a Cape League volunteer and the impact he made.

The Brewster Whitecaps were presented with the Arnold Mycock Championship Trophy for the first time in 17 years at their home, Stony Brook Field, after winning the series 2 games to 1. Marty Costes’ sacrifice fly in the third plated the only run Brewster would require thanks to a lights out performance from starter Will Tribucher (6.2 innings, 5 hits, no runs, 5 strikeouts).

Whitecaps players, coaches, and fans stormed the field after pitcher Troy Miller induced a game-ending groundout to short. This is the Whitecaps’ first time winning the championship series since 2000. 

Whitecaps second baseman Nick Dunn and center fielder Hunter Bishop were named co-MVPs of the series. Bishop had a home run in the sixth inning (his third of the playoffs) on Sunday to give Brewster a 2-0 lead. Dunn went 3-for-3 in Game 2 at Bourne with 3 RBIs and a run scored, and finished the championship series with an even .500 batting average after an eighth inning single on Sunday.

“I can’t credit myself,” Bishop said after the game. “Will Tribucher pitched an unbelievable game and we wouldn’t have been in my position if it weren’t for him, so all my teammates, I give it to them.”

Brewster head coach Jamie Shevchik said his players showed a lot of fight en route to the championship win.

“These guys just didn’t quit,” Shevchik said. “When it’s all said and done, when you get into the playoff run, it’s about how many guys you have on your team that really want to win. I think they’re over trying to showcase themselves in front of scouts at that point. You’re left with a handful of guys that really want to win a championship, so if they take anything out of this summer and they take it back to school, hopefully we taught them how to win a little bit.”
