Pitchers of the Month Announced for AEL and LL

Yoshiaki Fujimara of the Montreal Metros and Willie Salazar of the Denver Highlanders have been named as pitchers of the month for August, for the Lake League and American Eagle League.

It is no coincidence that both teams were the first in their leagues to clinch playoff spots, helped in both cases by solid pitching.

Fujimara went 6-0 in August, with 2.23 ERA on the month. His season record stands at 12-2, and remains a strong contender for the LL Sandy Koufax Award this year.

Salazar only dropped one of six decisions in August, holding opposing teams to just 1.85 earned runs per nine innings of baseball, and notching 52 strike outs over 48.2 innings. He is 7-4 on the season with a personal best 2.67 ERA.
