Awards and Notes:  Ryan came onto the scene in 2017 with trash talk and not backing down to anyone while wearing flip flops in some games.  Ryan made some noise with his ability to hold his ground and compete with the best through the weeks, expect to see an improvement in his second year.

 

 

#12 (52.78) Jack Hillegonds vs. #53 (15.35) Jake Olthoff

 

Jack Hillegonds

Jake Olthoff

2016: #35 (14.34)

2015: NA

2014: NA

#21 (38.71) Drew Eenigenburg vs. #44 (19.50) Ben Byma

 

Drew Eenigenburg

2016: #16 (39.35)

2015: #10 (39.84)

2014: #1 (53.19)

 

General Stats – 36 Games Played (20-15-1), 38.71 Ranking (21st), 47.22 Qualify (20th), 30.21 Salary (35th), 25.08 Batting (44th), 35.35 Pitching (21st).

 

Batting Stats – 0.340 Average, 0.591 Slugging, 20 Homers, 43 RBI’s, 48 Runs, 104 k’s, 259 at bats

Pitching Stats – 0.384 Average, 5.44 ERA, 49 2/3 IP, 7-2 Record, 2-2 Saves, 55 k’s, 237 at bats.

 

Awards and Notes:  Champion – 1 (2014), Mr. Leroy – 1 (2014), Owner of Year – 1 (2014), Ironman Award – 1 (2014), All Leroy – 1 (2014), All Iron Team – 1 (2014), All Pitching – 1 (2014).  Experience – 1 (2014), All Star – 1 (2014).  It is a shame many new players will never know Drew and what he meant to the league in the start.  He put together a team that took the league by surprise and laid the blueprints on how to win in Leroy right off the bat.  A hand injury in 2015 derailed his career and unfortunately we didn’t see him in 2017.
