    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Most scouts describe Dave as a mix of John MacDonald and Rickey Henderson. His brilliant glove at short solidified an infield and when called upon could play anywhere else on the diamond. Daveís bat exploded in 2012 and thatís reflected in the numbers. A .500 batting average, tier high of 27 hits, along with 26 runs scored and 16 stolen bases. Dave was exceptional in 2012 and even managed to keep all his teeth this season.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Sylvain had a very good year, he was especially efficient in key situations with men in scoring positions, amassing 25 RBIs for the Irish. His batting average was much higher with men in scoring position.  He was still able to finish the year with a .385 batting average and on base of .458 and a on base plus slugging of 1.035. He hit his first homerun with a wood bat this year. and also hit 7 doubles.  Defensively Sylvain was extremely reliable in left field, making multiple diving catches.  His clutch offensive abilities and defensive reliability makes him our MVP for the season and a key contributer of the Irish's success this season.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG One of our two workhorses on the mound, Joel lead our team with 5 wins, 2 saves, a 3.79 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP.  Unfortunately the WHIP is inflated as a result of the subpar defense behind him, especially early on, that extended over half of his innings pitched by at least an extra out. Joel's shining moment on the year was a 9 inning, one hitter vs. the Braumeisters for the first complete game shutout in team history.  After a very slow start at the plate, when he was still adjusting to the league, Joel finished the year 2nd on the team in RBIs and walks and 3rd in hits and runs.  On top of these great numbers, Joel was virtually automatic in the field with only 1 error in the regular season while playing all 5 infield positions (including a couple innings at catcher) on top of pitching.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Tied for the lead in Homerunís with two and a solid hitter too boot.  Patient at the plate and aggressive on the basepaths no matter what the other team did to stop him.  Also pitching, Double Dís stepped up as our ace this year leading the team in innings pitched and strikeouts.  A force to be reconned with he stayed calm and collected in any circumstance.  A managers dream he never complained, kept positive attitude and was ready to go in a pinch.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Brian is a strong left handed pitcher and if he had a good outfield (of which I must have personally let him down a dozen times) would have had many many more wins. When not pitching, he played the best 3rd base in the tier, and didn't commit an error all season. His bat was incredibly consistent, was the true leader on the team, motivated the group, built the lineup and kept everyone on target. There is no better guy this year for this award.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG With early injuries to the other catchers, Hank carried the lion's share of the catching duties while contributing to pitching duties when required. Offensively, he was near the top of most offensive stats.

Third in the tier in runs with 26 and second in stolen bases with 16.

Dave was the single biggest reason why this offensive explosion occurred for TRV.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Marc had his best year in the NCBL, placing in the top 10 tier 4 leaders in most categories. His batting average was .457, and his patience paid off with his 15 walks he was able to get on base more than half the time .590. He scored 21 runs, batted in 23 runs, 7 doubles, 1 triple, 2 homeruns, with a slugging percentage of .783 and an on base plus slugging of 1.373.

His bat was key to the Irish making the playoffs.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Our primary starting shortstop, Scott Kiser was a force in the 3 hole of our lineup from Game 1 and all the way through to Game 20.  He finished the year leading the team in hits (23 including 5 for extra bases) and RBIs (with 19) and he tied for the team lead for fewest strikeouts with only 4.  He also tacked on 9 walks and 5 steals.  All in all, Scott's excellent year at the plate can be summarized with his impressive slash line of .434/.530/.537 for an OPS of 1.077.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Patience is a virtue and he had that asset.  Always a great batter but broke through as the man with the average and the man who hit RBIís in.  Two homerunís to tie the team lead this year, his power was that of the Golden age of ball.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Brett was a workhorse on the mound pitching 27.33 innings going at least 4 innings in every one of his appearances.  His ERA of 6.15 is misleading as nobody on our team accounted the errors during the games in the scorebook. All of you who have played the Irish know we make our fair share of errors... In his 6 starts he was able to amass 32 strikeouts with only 16 walks, going 4 - 2. His reliability on the mound played a major role for the Irish making the playoffs.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP This is a tough call as the Jacks had two outstanding starting pitchers this year that really helped make our first year in the league a success. However, when you look at the numbers, it's hard to argue with the choice of Scott Wood for best pitcher in the tier. Wood lead the tier in innings pitched and strikeouts, finishing the year with 4 wins, 1 save and a very impressive K/9 at 10.9 (highest in the tier as well).   Though the WHIP and ERA may seem a bit high for what may typically be considered the "Best Pitcher", all of our pitchers battled hard through absolutely terrible defense early in the year, which extended far too many innings, elevating these numbers as well as pitch counts.  Overall, Wood was downright dominant and the fact that he finished 15 Ks ahead of the 2nd place pitcher in the tier gives you an idea of just how good he was.
