Most Valuable Player

Scott Roberts, Madera Pitcher-OF, Senior

Stats: 10-4, 2.17 ERA in 82 IP with 78 K and 18 BB; .424 BA, 13 2B, 21 RBI, 4 HR.

Resume: Almost to a man, the 2013 Madera Coyote baseball team wanted to win the Div. II Valley Championship for Roberts. He was the County/Metro Athletic Conference Player of the Year and for good reason. He led the Coyotes with a .424 batting average, four home runs, 13 doubles, 23 runs scored and 21 RBI. He also recorded a team-high 42 hits and reached base more than half the time. Roberts, last year’s All-Madera Tribune Most Valuable Player, was equally impressive on the mound, preserving his ace status for the past three seasons. Roberts was a remarkable pitcher. Roberts had the ability to go through a game, then find out that the game was almost over and he had the lead with a four-hitter. Roberts closed out his senior season by throwing 17 innings and picking up all three wins in Madera’s playoff run. He allowed four runs, seven hits, struck out 17 with four walks to lead the Coyotes to their first Valley Championship in 13 years.

Pitcher of the Year

Connor Brogdon, Liberty Pitcher-OF, Senior

Stats: 5-4, 1.86 ERA, 60 1/3 IP, 79 K, 20 BB, 35 H in North Sequoia League.

Resume: Last year’s All-Madera Tribune Pitcher of the Year made it a clean sweep for last year’s All-Madera Tribune baseball and softball MVP and POY to repeat. Brogdon was equally impressive this season, recording a 6-4 record with a 1.77 ERA against some of the Valley’s top pitchers, including Kerman’s third round pick, Carlos Salazar. Brogdon was one of only three Central Valley players to be drafted in the 2013 MLB first-year player draft by the Atlanta Braves in the 40th round. He also batted .315 during the season with four doubles and 23 hits, second on the team. Brogdon was the NSL Pitcher of the Year...
