Team Stats
Tier 3 Leaderboard
Most Valuable Player
Team Player
Blue Jays Chris Labelle
Chris did everything for us this year. He ate up a lot of innings on the mound. Also stole over 30 bases. He batted over .600 and played injured for most of the year. He played every position in the field throughout the year. I think he is a good candidate for MVP.
Braumeisters Jeff Karran
intense, intimidating batter and defensive player.  Was the “go to” guy on offense, pitched very effectively (shutting some teams down), and making stellar plays in the outfield and infield.
Chiefs Cory Warren
Chiefs Catcher
Cyclones Chris Emond
Expos Phil Heath
Irish Sylvain Viau
Viau played every position for us throughout the season, was one of our top hitters, and came ready to play hard each and every game for us.
Mavericks Mark Bustard
Leading the team in hits, runs, RBIs and Home runs the Mavericks offense started with Mark's production at the plate.  Mark capped many rallies with a clutch hit as many of his 21 RBIs came with 2 outs or in the later stages of the game.  In centre field, Bustard was a calming influence for the Mavericks' staff as they knew the middle part of the outfield was patrolled by one of the best gloves in the NCBL.
Winchester David Yarwood
37 RBI's, always came through when we needed it.  25% of Team's RBI.
Best Batter
Team Player
Blue Jays Chris Labelle
Chris batted over .600 this year with quite a few doubles, triples and a home run. Every time he was at the plate he was a threat to get on base and once he did he was a threat to steal a bag.
Braumeisters Jeff Karran
ditto, plus team leading average of .465, slugging pct of .767, 3 dingers.  Was always a threat the plate – got intentionally walked more than any guy in the Tier
Chiefs Matt McCarney
Hit 3 Grand Slams, Two in the playoffs, hit well over .500
Cyclones Marc-Antoine Brissette
Expos Phil Heath
Irish Dan Haddad
one of our teams top hitters, batted lead off for us all season and always seemed to find away to get on base.
Mavericks Mark Bustard
Leading the team in hits, runs, RBIs and Home runs the Mavericks offense started with Mark's production at the plate.  Mark capped many rallies with a clutch hit as many of his 21 RBIs came with 2 outs or in the later stages of the game.  In centre field, Bustard was a calming influence for the Mavericks' staff as they knew the middle part of the outfield was patrolled by one of the best gloves in the NCBL.
Winchester David Yarwood
37 RBI's,  .423 avg.,  30 hits,  6 2b  4HR (2 in Winchester).
Best Pitcher
Team Player
Blue Jays Steve Rumleskie
Steve pitched a ton of innings for us with a limited amount of walks or base runners on. He always went a complete 7 innings for us not being pulled once. He won 5 games and they were all complete. Big reason for us making the playoffs in our first year.
Braumeisters Dave Rivers
 led the team in innings pitched (44), strikeouts (37) – good ERA (4.42), and always pitched against the tougher teams.
Chiefs Kyle Dwyer
Didn't lose a game all year (I assume he led Tier in strike outs)
Cyclones Dave Rotari
Expos John Bowes
Irish Tyler Dale
Dales win loss record only suffered from defensive errors this year. Dale finished the year with 6 earned runs and 28 unearned. Great overall player and always came with a positive attitude
Mavericks Jeremy Pluym
Accounting for more than a third of the Mavericks' wins, Jeremy was instrumental in turning around the Mavs' season.  His nasty curveball and deceiving pick-off move to first was the bane of many hitters and runners.  The Lefty averaged more than a strike-out per inning and threw 4 complete games victories.
Winchester Justin Comeau
38 IP (Top on Team) 3 wins (33% of team's win)  ERA 4.57 but had 9 earned runs in 2/3 on first start.  Remove that and ERA is 3.03.
