(GAME DATE — August 1, 2020) — Detroit Motorheads fans may just have witnessed a star player blossoming before their eyes in July. Payton Bint put up a remarkable month at the age of 24 and has been named the Lake League Batter of the Month.
For the month, Bint hit .418 with 11 home runs, 22 RBIs and 28 runs scored. This season Bint is batting .334 with 107 RBIs, 82 runs scored and 40 home runs.
Bint was named to the LL All-Star team last month for the first time. Last year, he was named 2019 LL Rookie of the Year. The 2018 6th overall pick, drafted out of the Western Mustangs in the Canadian Interuniversity Sports’ OUA conference, continues to outperform many of his draft peers from that year, and is a name to watch in future batting title races.
