While the High School Wood Bat League is wrapping up its season with championship week, the League office is pleased to announce last week's players of the week. Matej Sucha earned the position player honor while PJ Nastasi took home the pitching award.
Sucha comes to IMG Academy all the way from the Czech Republic. On Saturday, Sucha went 3-5 on the day with a double, triple, and an RBI. In the next two games he would pick up two more hits. In the following week, Sucha pitched five strong innings to help the SeaDogs pullout a victory against the Conquistadors, earning the first round bye during championship week.
AVG - .556 Runs - 2 Doubles - 2 Triples - 1 SLG% - 1.000
OBP - .667 SB - 3
Nastasi is from Oldsmar, Florida. This young man was fortunate enough to pick up two wins on the mound last week in the scorching heat. On Saturday, Nastasi had one of his best outings when he pitched seven solid innings for a complete game, recording two strikeouts and giving up only one earned run against the Hurricanes. The Ace followed up this outstanding performance on Thursday when he again went the entire seven innings, this time striking out two and giving up zero earned runs. With these near-perfect performances, Nastasi will be an integral element during championship week for the one seeded Marauders.
