DALLAS - The Texas Rockies Baseball Organization would like to recognize the program's top performers from last week by naming Carter Cole, Will Maya, and Luke Jordan as the Players of the Week for May 11-17.
OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Carter Cole / 13U
Cole attained his first Offensive Player of the Week honor this spring by finishing with a slash line of .500 AVG/.500 OBP/1.000 SLG/1.500 OPS across three games played in last weekend's TSB Mother's Day Classic tournament in Melissa. The Texas Rockies 13U clean-up batter went 3-for-6 with one home run, two runs scored, and a pair of RBI in six plate appearances on the weekend. Carter's second long ball of the season not only tied him for the program lead in home runs this year, but also extended his career total to sixteen which is the most by any player to wear a Texas Rockies' uniform.
