Gerstell’s Reece Early used strong ‘B’ Conference final performances to win our final Prep Ballplayer of the Week award. He captured more than 73% of the vote that also included finalists Pete Marchineck (Calvert Hall) and Zach Stiars (C. Milton Wright).
Early pitched and hit the Falcons to a 6-3 victory over Boys’ Latin on May 20. The right-hander struck out 12 hitters in a complete game. He allowed three unearned runs. At the plate, he had two hits, including a solo home run, and an RBI.
Due to the double-elimination tournament, the two teams met again the next day.
Early contributed with two hits and a run in that game which ended in a 6-4 win for Gerstell and the team’s first ‘B’ Conference title.
