NSSBL Hands Out Hardware
Veteran Dartmouth Moosehead Dry third baseman, Joel Irvine, has been selected as the 2010 NSSBL Most Valuable Player for the fourth time. He led the league in hitting for the second time with a .393 average and topped the circuit with 44 hits. Irvine slugged 4 home runs and 10 doubles while collecting 29 RBIs, 31 runs scored and 11 stolen bases.
The Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League is also pleased to announce Guy Pellerine of the Truro Bearcats as the winner of the Gary MacDonald Memorial Golden Glove and Bat Award. Pellerine was selected by virtue of having collected the most player of the game awards given by the opposition throughout the regular season. Pellerine had an outstanding season finishing second in batting with a .383 average; third in hits with 41, including 7 home runs. A former star infielder with the Pictou County Albions, of the Nova Scotia Intermediate League, Pellerine has obviously made a successful leap to the NSSBL and received his first NSSBL all-star selection this year.
