    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Mike Cooke, or El Whoppo as his name translates in certain Spanish dialects, was a driving force for Los Vampiros in 2013. Mike led the way for the squad in pitching leading the team in innings pitched, strikeouts, Wins, ERA, and WHIP.  At the dish, he mashed all season long to the tune of a .321 BA, .486 OBP, and a .915 OPS. Mike made a difference when he was on the field regardless of where he played logging innings at SS and in the outfield when not on the hill. A fantastic first year for El Whoppo.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Ryan was hands down the Coyotes leader this year, not only did he bring his A game each and every game, he was positive and always in the game.Ryan lead the Tier with 57 IP and 7 Wins. while also spanking out 3 hr's and a nice .581 SLUG avg. He was top 10 in 8 categories. With Ryan's stats and athletic ability, numbers and gamer attitude he is most definitely an MVP.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG He can hit, pitch, play first, or a mean 3rd base for a lefty, every team needs a BC to lead the way. The PEI native was 3rd in batting average, 4th in OBP, 1st in Slugging, 1st in OPS, tied 5th for hits, 2nd in doubles, 1st in RBIs, 1st in total bases, and tied for 1st with 3 others (2 other Bombers) in HR with 3. For pitching he was 3rd in WHIP, 3rd in innings pitched with 50, and not on league stats (missed) but tied for 4th in wins with 5. A typical ground ball pitcher he can also sneak a lefty slider by even the best hitters and had 31 Ks on the season for 9th in the league. If you have a guy in the top of the hitting, and pitching categories, every baseball fan would agree that Tier MVP status should not be brought up without Brian Cameron being discussed.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Scott Wood was a force to be reckoned with all year, whether it was on the mound, in the field or at the plate. He finished Top 10 in the league in a a number of hitting categories, most notably: AVG, OBP, Hits and Total Bases. He also finished Top 5 in every pitching category, finishing 2nd in Wins and 2nd behind his teammate (a POTY nominee) with a whopping 68 Ks, which amounts to 8.5K/7 IP. On top of all this, he was a leader in the field, playing C, SS and 3B at a very high level.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Tough year for the Hurricanes but Zack, our rookie phenom blew us away with his attitude, his ability to battle back from tight situations and his aggressiveness on the basepaths, mound and or wherever he was placed. Nothing slowed this kid down and nothing seemed to be able to be throw past him. When on the mound he fought many situations out of his control but always maintained positivity and the fight to keep going.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Chris had an awesome year for the Irish, both at the plate and pitching. He batted 378, with an on base of 439 with a slugging of 703 (third in the league) and an ops of 1.142 (fourth in the league). Chris hit 2 homeruns (fifth in the league), had 6 doubles (fourth in the league), 14 rbis (seventh in the league), and struckout only once all season, but Chris was even better pitching. His ERA was a minuscule 0.54. He faced 58 batters, striking out 26 of them only letting 6 hits all season and let in 1 earned run. Chris closed most of the games for the Irish. His K/PA was second in the league at 0.02.

Best Batter

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Ron led the Los Vampiros in hits, RBIs, BA and OBP while tied for the team lead  in doubles, triples, and HRs.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Stef lead our team in nearly all offensive categories, not to mention 23 hits, 19 runs, .592 SLUG, and 8 doubles, he also is top 10 in 10 offensive categories for Tier 4 this year. This speaks volume of the all-around offensive game Stef brings each game. His speed, and ability to go deep in the count and still rack up an extra bag hit when the Yotes needed it, his clutch hitting and patience at the plate was always evident. For these reasons we believe Stef deserves the recognition of Batter of the Year.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Moneyball helped rewrite the way people look to winning baseball games and this man is your typical money guy when you need a hit or a runner or speed to steal a base, he can do it all.Benoit was 4th in the league for batting average (just .002 behind another Bomber), 2nd with OBP, 5th in Slugging, 3rd in OPS, tied for 9th in hits, 3rd in runs scored, tied for 6th in HR, 9th in BB, 6th in stolen basesin almost every top 10 batting category you will read his name. AND, this was all completed in just 14 games, as prior commitments would not allow him to play in the last 6 regular season games. To do all of this in just 14 games is very impressive as he was on pace again to lead the league in plate appearances, ABs, runs scored, and towards the top of the list in hits, stolen bases, doubles, triples, as he did in 2012. To have stats like for the season he played is worth the argument that the batting title should stay within the Bombers team for another team.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Though his numbers are certainly impressive - 7th in the league in AVG, 4th in SLG, 6th in OPS, T3rd in hits, 2nd in Total Bases - the thing that defined the year for Scott Kiser with the Lumberjacks was his penchant for coming up with clutch hits, in big spots, virtually every time we needed it. The 21 RBIs, good for 2nd in the league, certainly tell that story if the other numbers don't. Without Kiser's clutch hitting in the heart of this lineup, there's no way we finish 1st in the league.

It seemed that Brett was always on the bases for the Irish and contributed tremendously to the Irishs success this year.

Best Pitcher
Team Player
    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Mike had a fantastic first season for the Los Vs and is deserving of the Pitcher of the Year award. Mike led the team in innings pitched, strikeouts, Wins, ERA, and WHIP and within the tier ranked in the top 5 in all major pitching categories including 4th in IP, 5th in Ks, 2nd in win-loss record 3rd in ERA and 5th in WHIP. Mike was a stabilizing force on the mound that protected many of the other arms on Los Vampiros as he pitched a team record 7 CGs.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Ryan had yet another stellar year on the bump, leading the Tier in Wins at 7, and having 55 k's in 57 innings, a 3.32 ERA and a tidy 1.44 WHIP. Ryan dominated nearly every game he pitched. Ryan always kept us in the game and gave us a chance to win each and every time. Ryans stats alone are fantastic, but on top of that, he is a respected player and competitor, never with a bad attitude, and always believing in the team. Combining his stats, athleticism, and all around positive attitude, Ryan deserves the title of Pitcher of the Year.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP A mid-season addition to the Bombers Rene added a spark on the mound that helped turn the Bombers regular season around and helped lead them to a 2nd place finish. ERA was a lead leading 1.30, almost a full point ahead of the 2nd place pitcher (2.24). His WHIP was stupid low at 0.74 with 2nd place also very low at 1.30, but to be so far below the best pitchers in the entire league is very impressive. Some of the best pitchers in the game are defined by their ERA and WHIP, and when you look at his #s compared to the other good pitchers in the league there is no comparison, he stands well above all others.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Joel was a beast on the mound for the Jacks this year. 4 wins, 2.70 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and he lead the league with 69 strikeouts in only 46 and 2/3 IP... that's a rate of 10.35/7IP. The only player in the league, with that many IP, who comes remotely close to that number, is his teammate, Scott Wood (an MVP candidate). Bottom line is, when he was on, no one could touch him. Just look at his line from final game of the year vs. the Coyotes: 7IP, 3H, 3BB, 1 ER and 18 Ks! Dominant year from the man we call Big Sexy.
