Three Cougars Named 2017 Midwest League Post-Season All Stars

Wilson, McWilliams and Eveld all received mid-season All Star recognition earlier in year

The Kane County Cougars, in conjunction with the Midwest League office, have announced that outfielder Marcus Wilson, right-handed pitcher Sam McWilliams and right-handed reliever Tommy Eveld have been named Midwest League Post-Season All-Stars as selected by the field managers from all 16 Midwest League teams. All three players also received Midwest League Mid-Season All-Star recognition, participating in the league’s All-Star Game which was held this past June in Midland, Mich. Wilson, McWilliams and Eveld join an exclusive list of Cougars alumni, including Miguel Cabrera and Adrian Gonzalez, as players who have received both All-Star awards in the same season, bringing the organization’s total to 29 players in franchise history.

Eveld, who was promoted to the Advanced-A Visalia Rawhide in June, still leads active Cougars pitchers with 14 saves. McWilliams currently leads the team with 11 wins, 86 strikeouts and a 2.68 ERA. Wilson sits second overall on the team with a .294 batting average, 9 home runs and 46 RBI.
