SBL Players of the Week

By Sunset Staff 07/15/2021, 3:00am PDT

The Sunset League celebrated its All-Star Game this past Wednesday and it didn't disappoint. There's a number of great performances to honor from last week.

The hitter of the week is Jorge Perez (Chico State). The South Bay Slider slugger finished 10-for-16 with three home runs and four RBI.

The pitcher of the week is Mikie Gill (Azusa Pacific). The Arroyo Seco Sentinel flame thrower tossed six innings, allowed no runs, just three hits and struck out five.

The South Bay Sliders are derived from the defunct Slippery Rock Sliders of the Prospect League, where Baseball Club Long Beach owner Jonathan Rodriguez coached for two seasons. The Sliders look to bring an exciting brand of baseball to the South Bay and hope the baseball rich tradition of the area can help the Sliders franchise become one of the best summer teams in the country.

The Sliders look forward to an exciting first year as a franchise and look to grow with the Sunset Baseball League. 

The South Bay Sliders will play their home games at Valley Christian High School
