Ocosta’s Scheuber named Pac League hardball MVP

Senior pitcher dominated on the mound, at the plate in 2021

After an impressive season on the mound and at the plate, Ocosta senior Colby Scheuber was named the 2B Pacific League Most Valuable Player as league officials announced the 2021 all-league team earlier this week.

As a hard-throwing right-hander Scheuber was the league’s dominant pitcher this season. In a game against Ilwaco in March, Scheuber struck out 14 in a one-hit performance, throwing fifty strikes in 75 pitches.

“He was money,” Ocosta head coach Mike Allton said of his all-star hurler at the time. “He was dominant.”

Scheuber was also a standout at the plate, going 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a season-high six RBI in an 11-1 victory over Pe Ell-Willapa Valley in April.
