The West Coast League Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week, as announced by league president Brian Sloan, are Cal Baptist freshman first baseman John Glenn of the Walla Walla Sweets and Cal Poly incoming freshman pitcher Taylor Dollard of the Yakima Valley Pippins for the week of July 31-August 6.
Glenn wrapped his regular season yesterday with a 5-hit game and went 18-for-29 for the week with 8 runs scored, six doubles, a homer and 9 RBIs. For the summer, Glenn ended up hitting .316 with 11 doubles, 2 home runs and 29 RBIs.
This past spring, Glenn hit .321 with 12 doubles, 5 homers and 38 RBIs for Cal Baptist.
Dollard turned in arguably the finest WCL pitching performance of the summer, as the future Mustang tossed 8 shutout innings of baseball at Cowlitz on August 1. He walked none, struck out 9 and only allowed two hits to earn the 1-0 win.
The right-hander ended the regular season with a perfect 6-0 record (tied for the league lead in wins) over 7 appearances, 5 starts and 32.2 innings pitched. He posted a 1.92 ERA while walking 5 and striking out 24. He is the likely probable starter for the Pippins in game one of the WCL South Divisional Series set for Tuesday, August 8 at Yakima County Stadium.
