Written by - Posted 2015-09-01 12:52 in POTW

Is this really late? Yes. Have you been following the updates and delays? Then you know why.

*One automatic nomination this week, although he did well at the plate too, goes to Connor Dierman of Chicken & Wiffle who threw a perfect game vs the Garbage Plates (6 IP, 6 strikeouts). To add to that, Connor batted .643, had 6 doubles, and 4 RBIs.

*No new face here, Jack Shannon of the new Jackhammers once again gets nominated. Picking up where he left off, Jack batted .700 with an OPS of 2.600, had 3 home runs, a double, and 5 RBIs.

*Now on opposing teams, the brotherly competition continues. Jim Shannon joined Dupont Circle Jerks and continued his tear at the plate. He batted .667, hit a homerun (only one?) and had 3 RBIs with an OPS of 1.833

*This could be a huge pickup for the Jackhammers if Matt Gagnon proves his worth like this every week. Gagnon pitched 11 innings of 3 hit ball, striking out 14, and going 2-0 with an ERA of 0.55. He also batted .500, hit 2 homeruns, had 4 RBIs and 2 doubles.

  • Nick West of Wolfpack fell a triple short of the cycle in the first game of the season. Although he fell short of the cycle, he had himself a day at the plate. West batted .533, had 2 homeruns, 7 RBIs, 3 doubles, and an OPS of 1.667.


The public vote counts for 50% of the overall total, and the league managers vote counts for the remaining 50%.
