It was a great last week for PWL – wind was blowing out on most of the fields so we had some fun games. Also, this is a great week for POTW, we have some fresh names on here so get to voting for your favorites. And if you didn’t make it to the postseason this year, you’re more than welcome to come out and enjoy the games and weather with us this weekend!
- While Porkchop Sandwiches didn’t make the playoffs in their first year, they certainly had some high points — one is Craig Miller (first POTW nomination). Not only does Craig pitch (1.00 ERA for the season), but he hits pretty well too (.321 avg). This week, Craig had an OPS of 2.000, 4 homeruns, and 5 RBIs – not bad.
- Brian Burrell is up for his first nomination since 2011 (with NWO, remember them?). In week 7, Brian and the Natty Brohs had 3 games (which they lost all 3), but Brian hit pretty good. With an OPS of 1.700, Brian hit 2 homeruns and at least gave the Natty Brohs a fighting chance in all 3 games.
- John Dondero is up for his first POTW nomination, and while he was only in the Sex Panthers’ lineup for 4 weeks of play, every time he showed up, he came to hit. In week 7, John went off – an OPS of 1.923, batting .535, 3 homeruns, and 6 RBIs. One of those homeruns also sent the Dupont Circle Jerks packing.
- Anthony Morin of the Canvassers (4th nomination, no wins) had himself quite the day at the plate – basically if he was up, he was getting on base, as his OPS of 2.111 shows. Morin was also able to hit a homerun and drive in 2 – ending the season as the Canvassers best hitter (.429 avg).
- William McNally (4th nomination, 1 win) has helped Suns Out Guns Out finish the season on 9 game winning streak (yeah, 9 games). This past week, Will went perfect in game 1 (3 for 3), including 2 homeruns and 4 RBIs. For the day, Will ended with an OPS of 2.429.
