Diador Elrailbo must have thought he was in seventh heaven this week. First he went on a sensational hitting spree, belting the ball at a .615 pace, then the Old Forest first baseman finds out he has been selected the top performer and gets the Shire Conference Player of the Week Award.
Asked what his hitting philosophy was, Elrailbo 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 Elrailbo. He hit .615 average (8-for-13) with no home runs and 2 RBIs.
Elrailbo is batting .275 with 19 home runs and 52 RBIs this season.
