The Detroit Thunderbirds ran the table in Traverse City opening week as they captured three road wins to begin 3-0, the only team to be undefeated. Silas Carvalho, winner of the 2015 Lake Erie Bat and Lake Superior Player Awards led the way stroking 6 hits in 12 AB’s.
That sound you hear down at the corner is not a crime in the act of taking place. Not unless you consider what Silas ‘Shotgun’ Carvalho is doing to South of the Border pitching. In a league that has been dubbed the “The Pitching League” Silas stands apart from the crowd. How apart from the crowd? Here are the top three hitters:
.409 Carvalho (DET)
.317 Li (MIL)
.317 Longchamps (MIL)
The numbers speak for themselves. Can this T-Bird hit .400 in the inaugural season? Seems impossible but 47 games and 217 PA’s argue that it might be done. All eyes on Detroit’s Silas Carvalho.
