Sportsman of the Week Ending 5/1/2022
While the NHL and NBA playoffs heat up, it was the first baseball player in 2022 that caught our attention. Taylor Ward of the high expectation Los Angeles Angels dominated at the plate in a week in which his team took control of the American League West Standings. Ward batted .448 (13-for-29) with 10 runs scored, two doubles, a triple, four home runs, 11 RBI, two walks and a 1.000 slugging percentage over seven games played (credit MLB.com). While the Angels tallied a 6-1 week to lead the ALW by 2.5 games by the end of the week. On a team with three former Most Valuable Players (Trout, Ohtani, and Rendon), it's Ward who has been the early hero and is the Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
