Brian of Jack Shack Voted Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for Week 5

13 Aug

Brian went 5-for-7 with two home runs, pitched the first shutout of 2020, and led Jack Shack to two wins in week 5, and was named Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week.

In a narrow vote split between Brian of Jack Shack and Jude of Guacamol-yay, Brian was named PBR Wiffler of the Week for week 5 of the 2020 EWL season.

Brian was strong at the plate and on the mound, leading Jack Shack to two wins in week 5. He helped Jack Shack finish the first half of the season strong, and despite missing 2019 Wiffle Series co-MVP Adam for multiple games due to injury, the defending champs were in sole possession of first place in the EWL standings at the midway point of the regular season.

Brian outmatched Christian in a pitcher’s duel in Jack Shack’s 3-0 win over Cheap Goats. Brian pitched a five-hit shutout, the first of his career and the first of the 2020 EWL season. He also went 2-for-3 at the plate with a double, a home run, and two RBI, providing himself enough run support for the win.

In a 4-3 win over Guacamol-yay, Brian went 3-for-4 with a single, triple, home run, and two RBI.

In total for the week, Brian went 5-for-7 with a single, a double, a triple, two home runs, three runs scored, and four RBI.

This is Brian’s second career Wiffler of the Week honor. He was also named Wiffler of the Week for week 3 of the 2019 season.

Mike of Shady Characters Voted Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for Week 4

31 Jul

Mike had four home runs, including a rare Grand Slam, to lead Shady Characters to two victories in week 4. He also received a record number of votes for Wiffler of the Week.

After receiving the most votes a player has ever received in the ten year history of the EWL (29), Mike of Shady Characters was named Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for week 4 of the 2020 season.

Mike has been the spark that ignited Shady Characters revival after a disappointing start to the season, and his play at the plate and in the field has lifted them into contention, particularly his dominant week 4 performance.

In Shady Characters’ revenge win over Cheap Goats, when they scored thirteen runs in the top of the first inning, Mike went 6-for-7 with three singles, a double, two home runs, five runs scored, and five RBI. He also hit only the fifth ever regular season Grand Slam in the history of the EWL.

Against Jack Shack, Mike went 4-for-8 with a single, a double, two home runs, three runs scored, and five RBI in the 15-9 Shady Characters victory.

In total for the week, he went 10-for-15 with four homers, and he also registered nine putouts in the field, leading Shady Characters.

As the number two hitter in the Shady Characters lineup, Mike has quickly become one of the most dangerous hitters in the league, and he has made the two-time runners-up a legit championship contender in 2020.

This is the first time in Mike’s career that he has been honored as Wiffler of the Week.

Cheap Goats have now won all three of the Wiffler of the Week awards to this point in the 2020 season. This is the 4th time in league history that a team has won three or more consecutive Wiffler of the Week awards. In 2012 the Caucasians had four consecutive winners with Ron, Morrison, Frosty, and Les across weeks 7 through 10 of the regular season. In 2018, Loss Mitigation had three or more consecutive Wiffler of the Week winners an incredible three times throughout the season.
