#12 (52.78) Jack Hillegonds vs. #21 (38.71) Drew Eenigenburg

 

Jack Hillegonds

2016: #18 (38.16)

Pitching Stats – 0.355 Average, 4.88 ERA, 64 IP, 10-5 Record, 6-7 Saves, 99 k’s, 293 at bats.

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.

 

 

#3 (71.50) Kyle Jansma vs. #30 (28.83) Shane Anderson

2014: #6 (47.93)

 

General Stats – 70 Games Played (33-36-1), 71.50 Ranking (3rd), 101.12 Qualify (3rd), 41.88 Salary (12th), 42.00 Batting (13th), 41.76 Pitching (12th)

 

Batting Stats – 0.411 Average, 1.010 Slugging, 92 Homers, 174 RBI’s, 152 Runs, 141 k’s, 514 at bats.

Awards and Notes: All Leroy – 3 (2014, 2016, 2017), All Iron – 3 (2014-2016), All Salary – 1 (2017), All Batting – 3 (2015-2017), All Star – 4 (2014-2017), Experience – 4 (2014-2017).  Kyle Jansma added to his resume this year leading the Dutch Ovens to a #2 seed going into the playoffs.  He has been a consistent fixture in the league through its entirety.  The one thing holding him back is he has never even made it to a championship series in any of the 4 years he played.  He and his wife welcomed their first child into the world a couple weeks after the season.  We hope to see Zander make an appearance in Leroy in 2018!

 

Shane Anderson

Awards and Notes – All Batting – 1 (2017), Experience – 1.  Shane turned some heads in 2017 coming out of the gate hot.  He had MVP considerations till a new job altered his schedule making him unavailable for a majority of games in the middle of the season.  He looks to come back with vengeance this upcoming year entering his first draft.
