POMONA, NY — New York Boulders utilityman Chris Kwitzer has been named the Frontier League Player of the Week, the league announced Monday. It is the second weekly honor for a Boulders player this season.
Kwitzer, who led the league in RBI last season, went on a tear this past week. The left-handed slugger batted .455 (10 for 22) with two home runs, nine RBI, and five runs scored in five games. Kwitzer also had a .520 on-base percentage, .909 slugging percentage, and did not record an error in the field.
Kwitzer was named an alternate for the Frontier League All-Star Game this year and won the outfield throwing contest at the skills competition during the all-star festivities. The Buffalo, NY native currently ranks 15th in the league with a .321 batting average and is batting a team-high .335 since the start of June.
The Boulders will recognize Kwitzer for his honor prior to their next game Tuesday, when they host the Tri-City ValleyCats at 11 a.m. at Clover Stadium.
