Asato Matsumoto of the Christchurch Christians might have lost a step over the years, but the 36-year-old right fielder can still get it done. He beat out several other worthy New Zealand League hitters over this past week to claim the Player of the Week Award.
Matsumoto posted a .409 batting average with 2 home runs and 3 RBIs last week while scoring 7 runs. For the week he was 9 for 22.
Currently Matsumoto has 7 home runs and a .323 batting average.
