*(GAME DATE — July 1, 2020) — Bill Covey really put on a show in June, earning the Batter of the Month Award in the Metropolitan League!
The Seattle right fielder batted .354 with 10 home runs, 34 RBIs, 18 runs scored, along with 22 walks to compile a .471 on-base percentage.
Covey is hitting at a .286 mark this season. His stats show 24 home runs, 75 RBIs and 47 runs scored. He has played 81 games for the Salts. The young 3-time all-star from Edmonton, Alberta has been named Player of the Week three times in his career, but this is his first selection as a Batter of the Month.
He was originally drafted by the Montreal Metros in the 8th round in 2013, and has been an impressive mid-draft selection.
