Our first BaltimoreBaseball.com “Prep Player of the Week” voting is in the books.
And what a first week it was.
Archbishop Spalding’s Billy Godrick, who batted .700 in three games from April 4 to 10, was our first winner, beating out Severna Park’s Kody Milton and North Harford’s Colin Bowling.
Let’s just say those Spalding Cavaliers weren’t cavalier in supporting their man.
Godrick received 1,426 votes to win our first award. That’s as impressive as Godrick’s week with the bat – which included a three-hit effort that fell a homer shy of a cycle in one game.
We’re doing this feature every week – choosing three area baseball players who have had outstanding weeks. If you want to submit a candidate for consideration for April 10-17, please do so by 3 p.m. Sunday to Dean Jones Jr., our high school/minor league writer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include stats if possible.
We’re looking forward to seeing if Godrick will be the high-vote getter for the season in Week 1.
Our Week 2 candidates will be announced Monday.
