Teaneck, NJ - TBO has named its first Player of the Week for the 2018, and Lakeland Bank's (MG Division) Abigail Wahrhaftig has taken the honors for the Week of April 29 to May 4.
In her first season in TBO, Wahrhaftig has quickly emerged as a team leader for her squad, with both her bat and her charisma. Wahrhaftig enjoyed a strong week at the plate, going 3 for 3 with a bases-loaded triple and an RBI single to put Lakeland ahead. She and her sister Maya make up a formidable pair, often pairing up on the left side of the infield for the team, with Abigail at shortstop and Maya at third.As Lakeland coach Ron Siesser noted, "Abigail has quickly become a strong bat in the line-up, her lefty swing is reminiscent of the great George Brett who was among the most feared hitters of his time."Aryeh Brecher and Jordan Kadry of league sponsor FM Home Loans were on hand to present Abigail with her well-earned honor. A premier sponsor and supporter of TBO, FM Home Loans will be presenting the weekly award to deserving players throughout the season.Click here to meet Abigail and Maya and watch as they receive their honors.
