WMBL’s First Player and Pitcher of the Week for the 2014 season
Player of the Week - Steve Hazel of the Regina Red Sox
Name: Steve Hazel
Steve Hazel caught every inning of every game for the 2-2 Regina Red Sox in their first 4 games. He had 9 hits in 20 at bats with a HR, triple, 3 doubles, 2 walks, 5 runs scored and 4 RBI. Steve played stellar at catcher not committing an error. The left handed hitting catcher is from Kentwood Michigan and is heading into his senior year at Georgia State and College. This year in 49 games for Georgia he hit .381 with 13 home runs and 53 RBI.
Congratulations Steve for being nominated and chosen as the WMBL Player of the Week for May 30-June 6, 201
Pitcher of the Week - Terry McNabb of the Moose Jaw Miller Express
Terry is a 22-year-old Davidson, Saskatchewan product who just completed his senior season at Division 1 North Carolina Central University. For the week of May 30- June 5, 2014, Terry posted an opening day win against division rival Saskatoon Yellow Jackets by throwing 8 innings, striking out 10 and allowing only a single earned run. His next appearance came in relief as a result of back to back rain-outs, and rather than throwing a scheduled bullpen, threw 2 scoreless innings against the Regina Red Sox, striking out 4 and picking up his second win of the year in the 13th inning during their home opener.
2014 will be Terry's 4th year with the Miller Express and he has been a fan favorite each of those years because of his demeanor and the competitive nature he brings to the mound each outing. He's a Health, Physical Education, and Recreation (HPER) major, carrying a 3.7 GPA, and upon graduating will look to return to teach back in Saskatchewan, or continue with the family farming business around the Davidson area. He's a core member of the Millers leadership group, and has been a quality teammate on every organization he's played for. He's been a great ambassador for Baseball Saskatchewan everywhere he goes and we're proud to have Terry back with us in a Moose Jaw Miller Uniform for his final year.
Congratulations Terry on being nominated and chosen as the WMBL Pitcher of the Week for May 30-June 6, 2016
