Gamgee Red-Hot, NZL Player of the Week

It can be difficult for a young player to step out of the shadows and assert himself in the New Zealand League, but last week Samwise Gamgee of the Invercargill Hobbits reminded everyone just why he’s here as he threw up numbers that made him an easy selection for Player of the Week. Gamgee rocked opposing pitching for a .400 average (6-for-15), 2 home runs and 4 RBIs to come away with the award.

This year Gamgee has hit 3 home runs and posted a .270 batting average.
