24-year-old Daisy Cotton sent shock waves through Tolkien Baseball last week with an eye-popping performance that brought her the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.
A newcomer to the league, Cotton made the establishment sit up and take notice, punishing opposing pitchers with a .500 average, 13 hits in 26 at-bats, 1 home run and 6 RBI.
Where the Moria Miners left fielder goes from here, only the baseball gods know for sure, but Cotton certainly made her mark last week.
This year Cotton is batting .269 with 66 hits and 6 home runs. She has scored 30 times and has batted in 26 runs.
