Making the First All CPL-Team was 2021 CPL Pitcher of the Year and strikeout king, Joe Miller (LHP). Miller picked up 71 Ks during his 10 appearances and led the league in most strikeouts.

In his third year as a Banana, Kennedy boasted a 0.73 ERA (the leader in the league). Dylan Cunningham shut it down as the closer for the Bananas with four saves and 33 strikeouts. He also pitched the final inning of the Championship Game. Andrew Armstrong, aka the Pickoff Assassin, had a 0.84 ERA in his 21 innings pitched.

Position players selected for the First All CPL-Team were Dan Oberst (1B), Livan Reinoso (3B), and Bryson Bloomer (DH/UTL).

Oberst, a three-year Banana, finished his final season as a Banana with a .333 batting average, 25 stolen bases, and 32 RBI. Livan Reinoso made an impact in his first year in BananaLand. Batting .362, Reinoso had 37 RBI, 50 hits, and 30 runs scored. Bryson Bloomer was a menace at the plate this summer with 6 homeruns, 20 doubles, and 32 RBI. Bloomer was also named CPL Player of the Week in Week 8.

The Second All-CPL Team features six Bananas in the lineup.

Jared Beck finished with a 1.05 ERA and struck out 38 batters in his 25 innings pitched. In his eight appearances, Dettmer struck out 24 and helped secure six wins for the Nanners.
