The Pacific Hurricanes’ Chad Blackwell was voted the league’s top performer in April. In a poll which smashed previous totals for MABL Player of the Month voter participation, Chad received an impressive 52% of the 89 votes cast online, beating out a field full of worthy candidates. During weeks 10 through 13, the Hurricanes’ right-hander went 1-1 on the mound with a league-leading 0.95 ERA and 0.89 WHIP over 19 innings. Chad also got it done at the plate, batting .500 (5 for 10) over that span.
In recognition of his achievement, Chad will receive a MABL t-shirt. There are a limited number of shirts remaining, so don’t wait – reserve yours before they’re gone. In a few weeks, voting for end of season awards will open, so be sure to check back soon.
