It was an exciting week of WMBL baseball. Medicine Hat and Swift Current remain atop the standings after continuing their winning ways. There were some outstanding individual performances in the WMBL this week. It is impossible to recognize all of the great performances in a week, and many factors go into determining the winners.
As previously stated there will be one winner of player of the week. That player will be recognized on the main page of the website. If the player of the week is a hitter, a pitcher of the week is awarded, and if the player of the week is a pitcher, a hitter of the week will be awarded. The cutoff for games will be on Sunday. A new week will start every Monday.
Week # 3 (June 13-19th)
Player of the Week – Mitch McGeein – Lethbridge Bulls – Infielder
Mitch McGeein arrived late to the Lethbridge Bulls, but has made an immediate impact on an already potent offensive lineup. McGeein had a very impressive first week with the Bulls.
