MVP
Team Player
    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Joe was voted as the MVP this year and the evidence is pretty clear why his teammates voted for him. Joe was very personable around the diamond, many teams know him from his years in the league. Joe did almost everything this year, he was a very strong while up to bat, pitched in several games, and played infield and outfield, only thing Joe didnít do was catch this year. Joe is a great team player that many teams would love to have join their team.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Chrisí breakout year of being injury-free was a boon to the Braumeisters. His versatility and reliability playing short, second, third, outfield and catcher was sorely needed on the aging Brau squad. His offensive contributions were second only to our best better; Avg .394; .ONB% .623; OPS 1.017.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Our CF for years, catching anything sent out to CF, had another solid year in the OF, not only catching but gunning guys out at the plate. He's as quiet as they come, but he made a lot of noise with his bat to go with the defence skills. The offensive numbers were spread out across the board, with RBI's, runs scored, walks, SB's, and AVG. This year we nominate Stef L. as our MVP.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Cory was the iron man of the league having played in all 20 games and leading the league in plate appearances (78); what makes this impressive is the fact that Cory was our number 1 catcher. Furthermore, of those 78 plate appearances he only struck out once all year. You will find his name all over the offensive leader board, second in hits (28); tied for second in home runs (1) and at bats (58). he was fourth in batting average (.483); runs (21) and walks (13). He was also top ten in slugging (.586). Not only were his offensive stats impressive but his ability to catch our pitchers and throw out runners was instrumental in us having a successful season.

Best Batter
Team Player
    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Joe was the batter you wanted up with the game on the line. Joe had a strong bat all year long; great average, strong on base percentage and scored runners ahead of him if they were in scoring position. The stats speak for themselves, and any team would be lucky to have a player like Joe on their team.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Ron has won this award in the past. 2017 proved to be another dominant year for him at the plate. His total numbers are excellent, but where he really stands out, is in the SLG. department. He was also intentionally walked multiple times this year, once again showing his pedigree as a hitter.

Best Pitcher
Team Player
    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Brett stats donít speak justice on how good of a pitcher he is, many teams did not like to see him take the mound. He throws hard and have a great curve ball that many batters struggled with. Brett is a force on the mound and I am very glad he is playing on our team and not against him. Any team would love to have Brett in their starting rotation.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP A repeat as the Brauís ace, Bob was the workhorse who led the team in innings pitched (43). And despite all the extra pitches thrown because of some shoddy defense behind him, Bob kept is ERA to 3.58 with a WHIP of 1.93 to give the team hope.

    IP SO W-L-S ERA WHIP Mike returned to the Los V's full-time in 2017 and he was again the best arm for us.

Sportsmanship and Ability
Team Player
    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Shanon is dependable and a real team player. He is very supportive of his teammates and always ready to help out in any capacity. Although Shanon doesn't play as often as he did as a young man, at 45 years old he still likes to be involved with the team, and the sport he loves. Several teams said wanted a player like him; always positive, hard-working, dedicated to his team and the game. We feel that Shanon would be a very worthy recipient of this award.

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Capably managing the team on the field when Gary was not there caused Mike to endure many pains beyond his knees. He pitched 31+ innings, batted over .300, led the team in RBIs and hits and played solid infield. Never a complaint (at least heard out loud).

    PA RBI AVG ONB SLUG Jack was a rookie to the NCBL this year, but you'd never know it the way he played. He got his first NCBL win on the mound, and was always at the top of the order when hitting, leading the team in runs.
