Forerunner *Baggins must have thought he was in seventh heaven this week. First he went on a sensational hitting spree, belting the ball at a .379 pace, then the Ravenhill first baseman finds out he has been selected the top performer and gets the Mordor Conference Player of the Week Award.
Asked what his hitting philosophy was, *Baggins quipped to the BNN reporters, “Well, my theory of hitting is to just watch the ball as it comes in and hit it.”
It was a good week’s work for *Baggins. He hit .379 average (11-for-29) with 3 home runs and 8 RBIs.
This year *Baggins is hitting .373 with 15 home runs.
