U.S. West’s Miyasato-Farias, Maine District 3’s Brookings, Latin America’s Michel top hitters
Overall, offense was down for third straight series
Central East Maui Little League’s Orion Miyasato-Farias and Bangor East/West L.L.’s Ryan Brookings topped all hitters in batting average and offensive production for the 2014 Senior League Baseball World Series. But Pariba’s highly-touted Raysheandall Michel wasn’t far behind in the major offensive categories.
Central East Maui’s Orion Miyasato-Farias went 6-for-10 in the 2014 World Series to lead all hitters with a .600 batting average. The catcher also led all hitters in on-base percentage (.692).
Miyasato-Farias led all hitters with a .600 batting average, as he went 6-for-10 in the series. He hit safely in all four of the U.S. West champs’ four games. Although all six of Miyasato-Farias’s hits were singles, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound catcher still finished fifth for slugging percentage, at .600. In addition to batting average, he led all hitters with a .692 on-base percentage and finished second with an offensive production score of 1.292 (on-base percentage plus slugging percentage).
Brookings, who missed Bangor East/West’s opening game because he was in Connecticut playing in the Northeast Regional for Bangor’s American Legion baseball team, tied for the lead in triples – 1 – led in slugging percentage – .778 – finished second in on-base percentage – .636 – and led in offensive production – 1.414. He finished third in batting average, going 5-for-9 for a .556 mark.
The center fielder just barely qualified in the percentage categories, as he had 12 plate appearances, one more than the minimum required. He was hit twice by pitches and had one sacrifice bunt.
