It can be difficult for a young player to step out of the shadows and assert himself in the Shire Conference, but last week Valio Makino of the Lake Town Archers reminded everyone just why he’s here as he threw up numbers that made him an easy selection for Player of the Week. Makino rocked opposing pitching for a .414 average (12-for-29), 4 home runs and 8 RBIs to come away with the award.
For the season, Makino is hitting at a .258 clip with 14 home runs, 35 RBIs and has scored 42 runs. He has 109 hits, 27 walks and a .308 on-base percentage.
