Pair Earn NSSBL Player of the Week Honours
Halifax rookie Scott Willgress had one of the most productive games ever in the league’s 34 year history. In a game Thursday against the Truro Bearcats, Willgress had a three homeruns including a grand slam, a two-run blast, and a solo shot to go along with a double enroute to driving in 10 runs in an 18-8 win.
The feat is second only in terms of run production to Richie Walcott, who had 13 RBIs in one game for the Sydney Sooners in 1990.
Dartmouth Moosehead Dry centre-fielder Chris Head also had a spectacular offensive week. In two games Head went 8 for 11 (.727), scored 8 runs, and had 10 stolen bases. In Thursday’s game against the Kentville Wildcats he stole 7 bases. The league is also investigating its records to see if this is a league record for single game bag thievery.
The two will face each other on Tuesday, June 28 when the Dry travel to Mainland Common for a game at 7:30. You can catch all the action live at SportStream.ca
