Huffman, Jones Named Players of the Week

Two former Valley Leaguers now in the minor leagues were named the best pitcher or hitter in their respective league recently by Chris Huffman (Staunton 2012-2013) and Bradley Jones (Charles Town 2015).

First of all, Huffman was named the pitcher of the week in the High-A California League after striking out 8 in 6 shutout innings. Overall this season, he’s 10-5, 3.71 in 123.2 innings, along with 121 hits, 41 walks, and 94 strikeouts. He will definitely be in the running for full season A-ball pitcher of the year (another award ATVL made up).

Secondly, Jones was named the hitter of the week in the Appalachian League, after hitting  .448/.515/1.069 in 7 games, with 3 doubles, 5 home runs, 9 runs, 15 RBIs, 4 walks, and even 4 stolen bases. For the year, he’s hitting 278/326/552 in 223 at-bats, with 14 doubles, 1 triple, and 15 home runs. He’ll also get a long look for short-season A hitter of the year….

Congrats to both!
