POTW

Player of the Week Award

The Player of the Week Award was established in the Spring 2006 Season to reward the player who had the most outstanding performance that week. The winner is presented a Wiffleball Keychain. The keychain is no longer produced. After buying all available on ebay, the league owns enough to present the award until 2014

The award has always been voted on by the league after players were nominated either through an automatic formula, or by the Commissioner or Deputy Commissioner. The votes were originally cast by emailing the Commissioner. Voting was limited to players in the league. In Week 6 of the 2007 Spring Season, the voting was moved to the website and all players, fans, media, and players families could vote.

Starting with the Spring 2012 Season, the public vote was mixed with a vote of the managers of the league teams to determine the winner. The public vote and the managers vote each count for 50% of the final tally.

Player of the Week (Su12): Week 3 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2012-08-23 23:46 in POTW

A half week with the rain out so some nominees sneak in with less competition. We won’t put an asterisk next to their name if they win, but we might give them a slightly broken keychain.

The rain didn’t stop Joe Thaman from hitting five home runs, that is not a type-o.

Player of the Week (Su12): Week 2 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2012-08-23 23:46 in POTW

Week 2 nominations are up after a slight delay. Tough week for offense as the wind was non-existent.

Our first perfect game of the summer nets Chris Mazur a POTW nomination. His batting wasn’t so great, but he struck out 9 on the weekend, was perfect against Blatz and forced Scared Hitless to go 8 innings before they finally beat him.

Player of the Week (Su12): Week 1 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2012-08-10 01:15 in POTW

Week 1 turned out to be an offensive week in a number of ways. The wind was purely offensive, with the heat coming in a close second at just oppressive. In another kind of offense, the league batted .417. That’s 120 points higher than the season will supply. Wind blowing out = home runs. Home runs = POTW nominations.

If we could nominate the wind we would. Instead we nominate five guys who took advnatage of the situation and killed some wiffleballs.

We’re continuing the new voting plan from last season. The public vote here will be worth 50% of the final decision. The other 50% will be based on the votes of the league managers.

Special shout out to Will McNally for hitting for the 16th cycle in league history. He gets an automatic nomination here, but clearly won’t be voted in to the All Star Game.

Todd Ogg of NWO won Player of the Week honors for Week 2.

Player of the Week (Sp12): Week 2 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2012-06-13 19:37 in POTW

Our last week of voting and once again we get to skip the pitchers. These hitters helped the league to our highest batting average in five seasons.

Yes, it pained us to nominate two guys from NWO, but you have no idea what we had to do to justify excluding a third NWO nominee, Alex Filides.

Player of the Week (Sp12): Week 6 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2012-05-31 10:04 in POTW

Three perfect games Week 6 limited the hitters getting recognized. At least the two of the three pitchers merited a nomination for their bats as well, and one, well, didn’t.
