Helal Named Week 1 PBR Wiffler of the Week

8 May

After a surprising offensive performance in week 1 in which he led his team to a win and a near shocking comeback, Helal has been voted the Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for the first week of the 2012 EWL season.

Helal got off to a hot start to the season at the plate, establishing himself as a rookie of the year contender and scattering his name across the statistical league leaders. In his first EWL game, his three-run homer put Downtown Bobby Brown ahead for good against the Ham Slams. In the second game of week 1, he went 3 for 5 with a double and two home runs, with 5 RBI and 3 runs scored. He is tied for the league lead in homers with 3, and he leads the league in RBI with 8. He can also be found in the top 5 in runs scored, slugging %, doubles, and total bases.

Helal narrowly defeated Joey of the Fish Sticks and his teammate, Gaurav, in voting for the award. Joey went 8 for 10 in week 1 with 2 triples, 2 RBI, and a league leading 6 runs scored in addition to earning a win on the mound. Gaurav went 3 for 9 at the plate with a homer and 4 RBI and pitched a complete game gem in Downtown’s week 1 win.
