Pair Earn NSSBL Player of the Week Honours

Logo for Baseball Nova ScotiaTwo players who had incredible weeks for their respective teams will share the Cleve’s Player of the Week Award in the Nova Scotia Senior Baseball League.

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
