A New Look at Showcasing Talent

Offensive Player of the Year: Kevin Balben (JJ McKay’s) 649, 618, 661; the batting averages for Balben over the last three years have made him arguably the toughest out in WayCo.  While Balben was unable to take home the three-peat this summer, he received ample help from Ian Bonner in putting together a playoff caliber team. Balben is the WayCo all time leader in doubles. (Payne Schoen)


Defensive Player of the Year: Mike Trueblood (Kitchen Interiors) “He’s a freak.” Was the nicest way and often head description of his play at shortstop in the summer of 2011. When the league leader in batting average and home runs is regarded as the better defensive player, it speaks volumes about his play in the field.  (Dana Sharry)


Surprise Player of the Year: Robby Barnes (Liberty Pizza) Barnes was a late round draft pick in his first WayCo season. “We knew he played a little baseball in high school and grew up with him,” said Sharry. “But the expectations were not him to be our best player this summer.”  Barnes hit .625 and played right center all summer for the 2011 champs. (Matt Picard)
