OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Luke Jordan / 13U
Jordan excelled at the plate for the Rockies over his five games played last weekend, batting .600/.636/.800 (6-for-10) with two doubles, five runs scored, four RBI, one walk, and two stolen bases. His scorching hot bat guided the Rockies to a 4-1 record and a third place finish in the Matt Dozier Benefit NIT tournament. Luke Jordan's nomination as the Texas Rockies Baseball Organization's Offensive Player of the Week is his first this season.
Honorable Mention: Collin Nicholson, Will Maya, Harry Sochia
PITCHER OF THE WEEK
Caden Robert / 13U
Robert (2-0, 3.71 ERA) allowed just three earned runs on three hits with five strikeouts across his one start and two relief appearances (5.2 innings) for the Rockies in last weekend's Matt Dozier Benefit NIT tournament. The Rockies' right-handed hurler held opposing batters to a .150 clip and earned his first two victories of the fall with two strong outings out of the bullpen. Caden Robert's selection as the Texas Rockies Baseball Organization's Pitcher of the Week is his first this season.
Honorable Mention: Andrew Zuch, Luke Jordan, Tyler Sessions
DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK
Acie Hickman / 13U
Hickman made his Rockies' debut an impressive one by consistently displaying the willingness to sacrifice his body with numerous diving attempts in the outfield throughout last weekend's Matt Dozier Benefit NIT Tournament. The Rockies' defender recorded six putouts on six total chances and completed his first tournament of the fall without committing a single error in the field. Acie Hickman's nomination as the Texas Rockies Baseball Organization's Defensive Player of the Week is his first this season.
