Dante Flores named Player of the Week
This week Chatham makes its season debut on the Coca-Cola Pitcher/Player of the Week roster thanks to lefty hitter Dante Flores (Southern California), whose impressive performances last week earned him a nod as Player of the Week.
Flores made a notable contribution in last Tuesdays game against Y-D by racking uo three doubles and an RBI. His skills truly stood out during the weekend, in which his two-day streak led Chatham to back-to-back victories. In Saturdays game 8-4 victory over the Harwich Mariners, the sweet swinger singled twice in the second inning and cracked a homer in the eighth. On Sunday, Flores went 2-for-4, doubling in the fourth and singling in the eighth in the Anglers' 7-3 victory over the Brewster Whitecaps.
Flores, originally from Norwalk, Calif., attends USC. In his 90 at-bats this spring, Flores batted .256 with 23 hits, with 11 RBIs and four doubles.
