August 20th, 2018
ROCHESTER, Mich. – Ethan Wiskur of the Westside Woolly Mammoths has been named as the United Shore Professional Baseball League Player of the Week, announced by the league office on Monday. Wiskur, a native of Clio, Mich., earns the distinction for the second time this season (5/21, 8/20).
Wiskur led the Woolly Mammoths to a much-needed victory on Saturday night against the then first-place Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers, hitting his fifth home run of the season in a 6-3 win. He followed that up with a three-run home run on Sunday in a tough 7-4 loss to the surging Utica Unicorns.
For the week (Aug. 13-19), Wiskur batted .333 (4-for-12) and posted an impressive .917 slugging percentage. He tallied two home runs and drove in five runs for the Woolly Mammoths.
Wiskur joins Utica Unicorns Dan Ward as the only two players this season to earn USPBL Player of the Week on two occasions.
