Chase Bloomer named Appy League Player of the Week


JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. — The Appalachian League has announced that Chase Bloomer is the Player of the Week for the week of June 10-16.

Bloomer had a stellar week, going 9-for-21 with seven RBI and a grand slam.

“Chase has been integral for this team early in the season. He’s been a guy we can really rely on when we need someone to get us a big hit,” manager Kevin Mahoney said.

Bloomer, the Southern Illinois-Edwardsville Cougar, is the first Doughboys player to win a weekly award this summer.

The Doughboys will hit the road tomorrow for their first-ever matchup against the Tri-State Coal Cats.
