CLPB Pitcher and Player of the week

Carter Huffman selected as first 2019 CLPB player of the week: June 22/23, by jordan Wolff

What exactly defines a player of the week? It’s someone who performs at an above average level the entire week, giving their team a chance to win each and every game.

For the first 2019 player of the week (retroactive to week of June 15), the CLPB has decided to select Loggerheads outfielder Carter Huffman. Huffman isn’t someone who plays at Vanderbilt or Michigan, but goes to Sewanee: University of the South (Division III school).

Huffman made an immediate impact as a freshman, as he played 34 games batting .275 with 22 RBI’s and 1 HR. Coming to a league with a bunch of Division I talent, Huffman certainly didn’t let that affect him.

“Competition down here (Florida) is a little bit better because of the D1 guys I’ve been seeing,” Huffman said. “The fastballs are a bit harder and it’s just good competition.”

Huffman put Sewanee on the map in his first week, as he leads the CLPB with a .600 batting average and has three RBI’s with one home-run.

Going from .275 to .600, what’s been the biggest difference? Huffman just believes it’s being more aggressive at the plate.

“For me it’s just attacking early,” Huffman said. “Pretty much the whole week I kept swinging at the first pitch and it has been working for me. So I guess I’ll just keep doing that.”.

Huffman followed up by explaining how his teammates daily preparation has helped him adjust to playing with Division I talent.

“They got a different mentality,” Huffman said. “They go to a Division I school, and they’re cool and I’m able to get along with them.”

Huffman continues to stand out this week, as in Friday’s matchup against the Snowbirds he went 3-4 and led the game with three hits.

As the Loggerheads, they are currently 1-4-1 and are in fifth place in the CLPB standings. As for what they need to do moving forward, Huffman suggests being able to finish games.

“We just have to get the win,” Huffman said. “We’ve tied two or three times now and we have to stick it out to get the win. We do have a lot of guys absent, so when they get back hopefully that helps.”

Sailfish Gweshaughn Richards selected as CLPB Player of the Week (Week of July 14): July 15, Jordan Wolff

The CLPB has announced that the Sailfish first-baseman Gweshaughn Richards as player of the week (Week of July 14). While on field production is apart of it, Richards has turned into a guy who has garnered much love and respect from his teammates.

Richards recently did an interview, which he discussed how hasn’t been hitting the way he wants and shared how he feels like he needs  to fix it.

“I’ve haven’t been in a slump, but more along the lines of slacking with my hitting,” Richards said. “So I went out there with nothing to lose and realized that I need to trust my hands, see the ball and hit it.”

In other words, he wanted to simplify his approach at the plate. Whatever adjustments he’s made, it’s working as Richards finished the week with a .529 batting average in just four games played.

In 17 at-bats, Richards scored five runs, totaled nine hits, and had a league leading eight RBI”s. Richards accomplished something even bigger than that, as Richards became the first player to hit for the cycle in the CLPB 2019 season.

In a 13-9 victory against the Florida Vipers, Richards went 4-4 (hit a HR, 1B, 2B, 3B) with a walk. In a recent interview with the CLPB’s own Colby Guy, Richards discussed what he did in that game and how he feels about his team.

“I just have to stay loose and trust my hands,” Richards said. “(Sailfish) We got a pretty good team and we’ve had trouble with consistent matchups and staying with the hits. Now, we feel pretty good.”

Richards week has ascended him to the top of his team leaderboard, as he nows lead the Sailfish in average (.367), RBI’s (10) and hits (11). His Sailfish are currently 7-8 (fourth in the CLPB) and take on the (9-6) Palm Beach Navigators on Monday at 7 p.m. (Palm Beach Gardens HS).

More importantly, Richards will be attending FAU in the fall and the Owls should definitely be excited for the type of player that have coming to its program.
