The Short Season A-level Milk League, which wrapped up play on August 17, and did not have a playoff, but previously announced the season champions as the Aurora Swashbucklers, has announced their player awards for 2017. Continue reading “Milk League Awards Announced”
The A-level Calf League has announced its 2017 player awards, following the close of its playoffs earlier this week, and the Calf Cup Champion Peoria Mosquitos cleaned up big, particularly LHP Philip Lont, and 3B Jon Guillot.
Lont had an impressive postseason, but with only 4 games at A-level prior to 2017, his regular season stats assured him both a Rookie of the Year and a Pitcher of the Year for the Mid-West Conference. Continue reading “Calf League Awards Announced: Peoria Cleans Up”
Anchorage Aces rookie ace starter Jose Soto once again snagged a Rookie of the Month Award, along with the Pitcher of the Month honors. This time, Soto took both awards in the same month.
July saw Soto remain undefeated for 2017, as he went 4-0 with an ERA of just 0.22 on the month, as he allowed just 1 run all month, while ringing up 51 batters. Opposing batters were kept to just a .110 average when squaring up against Jose Continue reading “AEL July Awards Announced”
The Lake League has announced their July player awards, and the Rimouski Fighting Moose have come out strong, with Nick Seer (pictured) taking both the Rookie of the Month and Pitcher of the Month nods, and veteran shortstop Joe Street completing the team’s sweep of the month’s awards by getting the Batter of the Month Award.
The 36-year-old Street had a stellar month, going .304 with 5 of his season’s 8 homers coming in July. Street, who was an MVP back in 2007, is in the final year of his contract with Rimouski, has a career .254 average and is closing in on 250 career home runs — he’s just 3 short as of today.
His face might be sun-baked after all the years he’s invested in this game, but 37-year-old Zenjiro Suga of the Rimouski Fighting Moose is still playing a kid’s game — and getting paid for it. The veteran first baseman had a tremendous week and was named the Lake League Player of the Week.
There’s no arguing that 37-year-old Takeo Otomo has paid his dues and this this week he collected. The Anchorage Aces first baseman had one of the best weeks of his career and captured the American Eagle League Player of the Week trophy.
He hit .423 while collecting 11 hits in 26 at-bats, 4 home runs, 9 RBIs and 6 runs scored. Continue reading “Otomo Named AEL Player of the Week”
