A rain-filled weekend didn’t keep the Constellation Energy League from producing another thrilling week of pro baseball at Constellation Field.
We’re happy to announce our first-ever Constellation Energy League Player and Pitcher of the Week. Check back on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, as well as our official website, to see who takes home the honor each week.
PLAYER OF THE WEEK (7/20-7/26)
Ford Proctor, INF, Eastern Reyes del Tigre
The former Rice Owl has done nothing but impress since a four-hit game in the Constellation Energy League Opener back on June 10. Proctor, who’s currently a member of the Tampa Bay Rays organization, had another fantastic week, going 4-for-9 with a double, triple, home run and five RBIs. Down to his team’s last strike on July 23, Proctor sent a towering two-run homer over the right-field fence to send Eastern to a 4-3 win over the Lightning Sloths. Proctor also helped his team finish out the week with a win, going 2-for-3 with a double, triple and three RBIs guiding the Reyes del Tigre to an 11-0 win over Team Texas. Proctor leads qualifying Constellation Energy League hitters with a .379 average and .690 slugging percentage, while also leading the league with four doubles and nine RBIs.
PITCHER OF THE WEEK (7/20-7/26)
Chase De Jong, RHP, Team Skeeters
Former Major Leaguer Chase De Jong has been nearly untouchable throughout his Constellation Energy League stint and last week was certainly no different. De Jong made just one start on the week, but made it count. Over five scoreless innings, De Jong struck out 10 Eastern Reyes del Tigre hitters on July 22, collecting the winning decision in an 8-0 Skeeters victory. This came after De Jong struck out nine batters in four innings of work in his previous start coming against Team Texas. De Jong, who played in the Majors as recently as last season with the Minnesota Twins, currently leads qualifying Constellation Energy League pitchers with a 0.00 ERA. He also leads the league with 22 strikeouts, a .140 opponents batting average and strikeouts per nine innings (16.50)
