Chapman and Henry Receive WCL Weekly Honors

Bend Elks Standout Derek Chapman of Washington State University
The West Coast League Player of the Week and Pitcher of the Week, as announced by interim league president Tony Bonacci, for the week of June 5-11 are Washington State junior outfielder Derek Chapman of the Bend Elks and Corban junior pitcher Caleb Henry also of the Bend Elks.

Chapman, a left-handed hitter, went 14-for-28 with a homer, triple, three doubles, three steals, six runs scored, six walks and 8 RBI for the week. He posted a .588 OBP and 1.374 OPS as Bend went 5-2 to open the season.

Henry earned a win in relief in the Elks season-opening 4-3 victory vs. Walla Walla last Monday and earned a second victory as a starter vs. Cowlitz this past Friday. He tossed two scoreless innings against the Sweets at Vince Genna Stadium, and twirled 7 innings of shutout baseball at David Story Field. In total, the senior-to-be right-hander threw 9 innings, earned two wins and did not allow a run while allowing only two hits. This past spring, Henry went 2-5 with a 3.91 ERA over 48.1 innings pitched for NAIA Corban.
