Maple City's Bronson Severs and Lynn Street's Nick Brassell win Most Improved Player awards.
Throughout the week, the Old Republic Wiffleball League will be handing out its yearly honors. Today we announce the winners of the Most Improved Players awards from both the American and National League.
In the American League, it was Maple City's Bronson Severs who won the vote as not too many people around the league saw this one coming at the beginning of the season.
While Severs may be new to some, he is no stranger to ORWBL success. An original member of the Maple City Magic back in 2011, Severs has actually been around the league for quite some time as he received consistent playing time up until 2016.
In 2014 he put together his finest season of his career, playing in 33 games while tallying 81 Hits, 58 Runs, 53 RBI, and 28 HR to go along with an impressive .540 average in 150 total at bats.
Although Severs was on the Magic roster for all 3 championships, he did not play in a single game over that stretch as he has served as a new face to many in the Wiffleball community this season.
After playing sparingly during the first half of the season, Severs finally got his chance to shine in the 2nd half as he became a regular in the Maple City lineup.
With Drew Luther forced to miss some time due to a back injury, the Magic turned to Bronson Severs in hopes of finding some quality production at the end of the lineup.
