At the age of 26, Les Groves might have some potential he hasn’t realized yet — if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The Newcastle catcher put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .519 batting average. For his efforts Groves collected the Australian League Player of the Week Award.
He racked up 14 hits in 27 at-bats, no home runs and 6 RBIs last week in 7 games.
Groves is currently batting .416 with 1 home run and 13 RBIs.
