County Line's JP Kehoe wins American League Triple Crown
COUNTY LINE- JP Kehoe of the County Line Kings has won the American League Triple Crown after putting together a remarkable breakout season
After belting out 6 more Home Runs in the final week of the season, Kehoe finished atop all of ORWBL in Home Runs with 57 while also leading the league with a .620 Batting Average.
Kehoe also led the American League with 76 RBI which was only 2 behind Granger's Alex Zarazee who had 78. With that being said, Kehoe led all 3 of the major hitting categories in the American League and in doing so takes home the Triple Crown award.
It was a memorable season for the soon to be McKendree University baseball star as he put together one of the more productive ORWBL seasons that we have ever seen since we moved to a 24 game regular season.
Kehoe's elite performance throughout the season has been a huge reason that County Line has been able to have the type of success that they are having. Kehoe figures to receive plenty of National recognition for having the season that he did.
County Line went 18-3 with Kehoe in the lineup as they have arguably been the hottest team in the league after getting swept on Opening Day by the Cyclones.
The County Line lineup boasts a pair of AL MVP candidates as Kehoe and Kody Webb have formed into one of the best 1-2 punches in all of ORWBL.
As we get ready for the playoffs, word has surfaced that Kehoe will in fact be around for the Kings playoff push. There were some concerns that he would have to leave early to fulfill baseball obligations but it looks like he will be able to play.
There is no doubt that this County Line team can make a serious run in the playoffs no matter what but having Kehoe available is going to be huge for their chances as he helps take this team to a whole new level.
County Line heads into the postseason as the #2 seed in the American League as their ALDS opponent will be determined on Sunday.
