Estes Named 2021 MVP

08/29/2021, 1:15pm EDT

Your 2021 MVP is Nate Estes from the New Rochelle Tigers!

Estes was nothing short of dominant all season long. The former 2015 MVP put together one of the WRWBL's most historic single season performances ever, and their was never any doubt he was going to secure his 2nd career league MVP award.

In a potent Tigers lineup, Estes was the driving force. He finished the regular season hitting an outstanding .449, with 37 runs, 35 hits, 9 doubles, 13 home runs and 44 RBI's. His 13 home runs smashed the league's single season home run record, and his 44 RBI's fell just two short of tying the league's RBI record. What was even more outstanding was that he only struck out a miniscule 4 times in 78 plate appearances.

Estes also contributed immensely in the field, as his play in center field helped anchor a Tigers defense that posted the highest fielding percentage in the league. For his efforts in the field, Estes earned a Gold Glove award for the outfield.

Estes capped off his historic 2021 campaign by securing his 3rd career WRWBL championship trophy with the Tigers and recently being named an All-Star selection.

Congrats Nate!
