    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Jordan was the leader in every pitching category except innings pitch, which he was second. He was the most doninant pitcher in the league, but also the most important player to the Cardinals, who almost always won when he pitched but we're just a .500 team overall.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Jules has been a front and center type player for our team. Relied upon to hit at key spots in the lineup, jules managed to put up impressive numbers with the bat, finishing amongst our best hitters in most offensive categories. Had it not been for his ice cold start (batting 166 through the first half of the season), he would have put up astronomical numbers as it seemed that every night after that he was putting up 3 hit nights and all of them being hard hit balls at that. As impressive as his offense was, his pitching is what really made him our MVP. This being his first year of pitching, we didn't really know what to expect from him but his competitive attitude served him well. Not being fazed by anything, he went right after every hitter and put up impressive numbers, forcing us to use him in more prominent roles. He ended the year as one of our starters while also being our closer for the whole season. Without him, we wouldn't have finished as high up in the standings.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Scott is a leader in every aspect of his game. He had monstrous year at the plate, even though its our first year in a higher division. He was both dangerous on the base paths and a threat to go deep. As our shortstop he ate up ground balls with range and completed plays with unbelievable smoothness. As a pitcher he was a key role player, he could start the game and go the distance or come in late and shut things down. As important as all the rest, hes class act all the way.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Rudy is on the top of the leaderboard in AVG (.500) and OPS (a whopping 1.500) and was in the top 5 in runs scored. Rudy OPS of 1.500 will put him on the top 10 list all time in Tier 2 history. Given this record setting OPS there is a little doubt he is the MVP.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Johny has been our cleanup hitter all year long and it's easy to see why. He lead our team and ranked highly in league statistics for most offensive categories. His great approach at the plate helped him stay consistent troughout the year as demonstrated by his low number of strikeouts and his high average. He was feared by many opposing pitchers resulting in a high number of walks, many of which being intentional, especially with runners on base.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Alex was a force to be reckoned with on the mound. Starting the year as a relief pitcher, he quickly forced our hand to upgrade him into a starting role. The number that most stands out when you think of alex is the opposing team's batting average. Alex just simply doesn't give up any hits and the hits he does give up are usually weak contacts just finding a whole. He came up big all year round as shown by his 6-0 record in which some of those came in relief as he shut the door and allowed us to make a comeback in the game. His numbers would have been even more impressive had we not shoved him into so many tough situations such as coming into the game with runners on whitout even having given him any warmup in the bulpen before hand. He also pitched many of our big games against top tier teams just as you would expect from an ace.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Craig was a late addition to the roster this year but was a key piece in our run to the finals. In the regular season Craig put up a 1.75 ERA in 32.00 innings pitched. He had 45 SO through those 32 innings and pitched to a 4-0 record.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Brad lead the league in walks and plate appearances, ranked 3rd in runs scored, and was 9th in on base percentage. His defense at second base was among the best in the league. His sportsmanship would be recognized by the leagues umpires, with whom he is always friendly. He respects his opponents and they likewise.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG A leader on and off the field, pops was the glue that kept our team together. Never complaining about anything, he was put into all kinds of different situations and thriving in all of them. Always trying to calm our team down when things got heated, he exemplified sportsmanship. What was even more impressive was the numbers he put up on both sides of the plate. Hitting over 300, this walk machine also managed to be on base half of the time. He did anything to get on base and help the team win demonstrating true leadership. His pitching was phenomenal as well. Not formerly known as a pitcher, Alex came in and was brilliant helping us on the mound. He ended the year as our best pitcher in terms of ERA which was impressive considering he hadn't played ball in 5 years.

JL also sports a .999OPS as well as 38 TB this season showing his ability to hit for both average and power. JL is a quiet, team person who does not show aggression towards others on the field or his teammates.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Rookie of the year was the hardest category for us to chose a nominee in as we had many impressive rookies this year but Max managed to stand out from the group. His approach at the plate was amazing which quickly made him an uncontested leadoff in our lineup. Max did anything to get on base as shown by his 7 HBP's and his nearly 500 ONB. Don't led yourself be fooled by the amount of walks and HBP though as he was no slouch at the plate either finishing 2nd on the team in total hits. He even demonstrated a bit of power from the leadoff spot posting up 5 doubles and 2 triples. All that being said, his range in the outfield is what made him stand out. Max could literally cover the ocean out there in center field. Nothing hit in his direction even had a chance of falling in. It's too bad we don't keep track of the defensive sabermetrics as his would be off the charts!! We are expecting big things from Max moving forward.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG New to the team, new to the NCBL and new to the region, Laurent stepped in as a key part of our pitching rotation. Laurent pitched a gem to log our first win in tier 2, a complete game shutout with zero walks. Great guy and a tough competitor, hes still young so hes only going to get better.
