Kapers Named to MVC All-Tournament Team
Scott Kapers earned all-defensive team and all-tournament team honors this season.

After the Valparaiso University baseball team turned heads with its performance at the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament in Dallas this week, junior catcher Scott Kapers (Schererville, Ind. / Mount Carmel) has been recognized as a member of the all-tournament team.

Kapers went 4-for-12 (.333) at the dish while sustaining his strong defensive work behind the plate that earned him all-MVC Defensive Team accolades following the regular season. He drilled a home run and drove in five during the tournament. Kapers had two hits in each of Valpo’s first two games, including the team’s 13-10 victory over second-seeded Dallas Baptist on Wednesday. He had a key infield single that served as a turning point in the win over the Patriots before clobbering a long home run to left in the seventh inning against Bradley on Thursday.
