Tim, who hit more combined doubles and triples in a single season than any other player in EWL history (36), was named to the All-EWL team for the first time in his career. After being named the EWL Rookie of the Year in 2015, Tim continued to develop his wiffle game in 2016, becoming one of the most consistent hitters in the league. He hit for .574 and was always a threat to reach at least second base when he put the ball in play.

Tim finished in the top five of hits, batting average, slugging percentage, and total bases, and he led the league in both doubles and triples. Tim’s ability to extend hits into extra-base hits was made apparent by finishing among the leaders in slugging percentage despite hitting only seven home runs on the season.

Tim was unable to attend the Wiffle Banquet, and Dan, his teammate on the Ham Slams, accepted the award on his behalf. He is only the second player in the history of the Ham Slams to be named to the All-Wiffle Team, joining Steve, who was All-EWL in 2014.
