No single hit brought Elrilwyn Elvywyn Player of the Week honors — the Rivendell Royals first baseman corralled the award with a consistent approach in every at-bat.
“Hitting is all about discipline,” said Elvywyn. “When you lose focus, start to lunge at the ball and swing too aggressively… swinging at a lot of bad pitches… that’s when your average starts to drop and you wind up fighting for playing time. You’re most successful when you concentrate on the ball and make ’em throw strikes.”
Concentrate he did. Elvywyn stroked 10 hits in 21 at-bats while cranking out 3 home runs, 9 RBIs and 7 runs scored.
This season Elvywyn has hit at a .289 clip with 48 RBIs, 14 home runs and 37 runs scored. He has played in 79 games.
