Ron Named 2011 EWL Manager of the Year

2011 EWL Manager of the Year Ron Walker

In a very close vote, Ron, manager and captain of 4 out of 5 Dentists, has been named the 2011 EWL Manager of the Year.

Ron led the Dentists to a .500 record at 10-10 and the #3 seed in the EWL Playoffs. The Dentists started 0-5, but finished the season 10-5, including a five game winning streak. Despite the first quarter of the season with a depleted roster, he pulled the pieces together and molded his squad into a championship contender. The Dentists were within a single win of clinching the #2 seed, and were in the hunt for the pennant through week 9 of the regular season.

Ron went to great efforts to put a full squad on the field, using 8 different players throughout the season for at least one game. The Dentists had 4 or more players more than any other team in the league throughout the regular season. Ron was one of 5 EWL players to play in all 20 regular season games.

Ron played and managed hard, demanding full effort from his team, setting an example with his own play, and respecting the game. He was a loyal ambassador of the EWL and wiffleball, and represented the intensity, dedication, skill, and leadership required of an EWL manager and star.

Guthrie finished second in voting, and had a great season as a manager as well. He led the Caucasians to the best record in the league and the first ever EWL pennant. He earned one more league vote than Ron, and finished second in overall voting after the commissioner vote was placed.

Ron will be presented with the EWL Manager of the Year Award on Tuesday during the Round 1 playoffs.
