Red Sox Optimist – 2001

2001 Season Record: 10-20-2

MVP – Dustin Sands
Outstanding Pitcher – Nick Evangelista
Sportsmanship/Hustle – Eric Shipe

The Sox struggled during the 2001 season largely due to a revolving line-up that kept first year manager Kevin Kantner scrambling for the majority of the season.

Even with a disappointing 9-16-2 league record, it was good enough to get the Sox back into the play-offs.

In the play-offs, they almost pulled off the unthinkable when they backed the Hamburg Reds into a corner by taking a 2-games-to-1 lead in the best-of-five semi-final series.

The Reds fought back though and came back to take the series 3-games-to-2 and eventually won the League Championship.
