Shane Billings: Week Four Turks POW
Congratulations to Shane Billings (Wingate) for being named Turks Player of the Week. Billings grabs the honor for hitting .440
in 25 at-bats during the week, with a triple, two home runs, seven RBIs and nine runs scored. His first two home runs of the season came this week and both were inside-the-park home runs. Billing’s first home run came on Sunday, June 28 in a 3-2 loss to the Charles Town Cannons at Veterans Memorial Park, the Turks only loss this week. His second came on Monday, June 30th in a 10-7. Turks win in a rain-shortened five inning game at Veterans Memorial Park. Billings has been a main cog at the top of the Turks batting order all season and has helped lead the offense as the Turks have won 11 of their last 12 games. He leads the Valley League with a .400 batting average.
