Star of the Week Awarded in LL, Aug 8-14

Few players his age are still in the league, but Setsuo Kimura of the New York Minutemen clearly loves the game and clearly he can still get the job done. Last week the 37-year-old first baseman hit the ball with the consistency of someone ten years younger, which made Kimura a popular and well-deserved selection as Lake League Player of the Week.

He paced the Minutemen attack by putting up a .458 batting average, 11 hits in 24 at-bats, 8 RBIs and 3 home runs. Kimura also scored 7 runs.

Currently Kimura has 16 home runs and a .318 batting average. The Minutemen are 12 games out of first place in the LL East, but are in a tight race for the 2nd wild card spot, with Hamilton only a game behind them, and Kingston just two games behind.
