Issth Foriand of the Misty Mountain Hops might have lost a step over the years, but the 36-year-old first baseman can still get it done. He beat out several other worthy Mordor Conference hitters over this past week to claim the Player of the Week Award.
Foriand posted a .417 batting average with 3 home runs and 9 RBIs last week while scoring 5 runs. For the week he was 10 for 24.
This year Foriand is batting .325 with 80 hits and 20 home runs. He has scored 47 times and has batted in 57 runs.
