The BBF AA League has announced the All-Star candidates from each of the AA southern league teams.
The candidates from the Herts Hawks are Louis Hare, Nic Goetz and Nick Russell. They all feature heavily in the main statistics categories for the Hawks so far this season.
Louis Hare leads in the batting average (.444) and slugging average (.556) categories. He also has the highest number of RBIs with 7.
Goetz and Russell have each lodged a couple of wins as the main starting pitchers for the Hawks. Nic Goetz has the lowest ERA of 1.80 although Greg Bochan may have something to say about this when he accumulates the required minimum number of innings pitched, as soon as the rain stops. Bochan currently has an ERA of 1.50 which is even more impressive knowing that it was recorded in a game against the best team in Pool B, the Sidewinders.
Nic Goetz currently has the best opposition batting average among the Hawks pitchers with an impressive .161. In the base-running category, Paul Auchterlounie is in the lead with 8 stolen bases.
