MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University baseball volunteer assistant Daniel Carte is one of eight inductees who will comprise the 14th Cape Cod Baseball League Hall of Fame class.

A native of Hurricane, W.Va., Carte recovered from a slow start for Falmouth in 2004 to become the league’s Most Valuable Player. He batted .308 and led the league in home runs (11), RBIs (38), slugging percentage (.560) and extra-base hits (17).

Carte helped lead Falmouth to the league championship and was later named the Summer League Player of the Year by Baseball America. He previously was named the MVP of the Great Lakes League.

Carte was selected in second round of 2005 draft by Colorado and played six seasons in the minors, hitting .272 with 61 homers, 115 doubles and 316 RBIs.

The induction will take place on Saturday, Nov. 16, at the Chatham Bars Inn.
