Richards, who topped Whitman in hitting this season with a .331 batting average, received Honorable Mention recognition as a second baseman.
Cohen and Young, who hit .307 and .284, respectively, also received Honorable Mention kudos. Cohen, an outfielder who also pitched and took a few turns at designated hitter, was honored as a utility player while Young was recognized as a shortstop.
