Covington Catholic senior Luke Maile, a hard-hitting catcher who has signed with the University of Kentucky, has been named Mr. Baseball by the Kentucky High School Baseball Coaches Association.
Maile batted .514 with 55 RBI and 12 homers this season. He was also the Gatorade Player of the Year in Kentucky, and was the 9th Region's player of the year for the third season in a row.
Maile was taken by the Boston Red Sox in the 43rd round of last week's draft.
Maile will receive his Mr. Baseball award on Sunday, before the East-West senior all-star game at UK's Cliff Hagan Stadium at 1 p.m.
