County Line's Kody Webb and Lynn Street's Levi Miller named Gold Glove winners
Throughout the week, the Old Republic Wiffleball League will be handing out its yearly honors. Today we announce the Gold Glove award winners from both the American and National League.
Starting in 2017, the Old Republic Wiffleball League began handing out the Gold Glove award which is presented to the top fielders in each league.
On the American League side it was County Line's Kody Webb who received the most votes after receiving a whopping 50% of the total first place votes. Maple City's Caleb Jonkman finished in 2nd place after taking home the honor last season.
For Webb, this is his 2nd consecutive Gold Glove award but 1st on the American League side after winning the National League vote last season as a member of the Olive Township Mechanics.
Webb joins Granger Panthers left fielder Seth Campbell as the only players to win the award twice. By winning the award this season, Webb becomes the first ORWBL player to win the award both in the American League and National League.
Over the past four years, Webb had become a household name on the defensive end over in the National League after seeing those teams a fair share of times.
Now with the Kings in the American League, Webb got an opportunity to showcase his stellar hands to those who hadn't seen as much of him.
Webb now winning the Award on the American League side certainly goes to show you that this guy has made more than enough plays to garner the attention and respect that he is receiving.
The 2016 National League Rookie of the Year award winner was originally not set to play in ORWBL this year after Olive Township folded at the conclusion of their 2019 ALCS run. Webb did however end up signing with the County Line Kings over the offseason in hopes of building County Line into a winner.
