Baseball – Week 3 Player and Pitcher of the Week Winners
Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey Week 3 Player of the Week
Christian Aurin, Point Boro
Aurin keyed Point Boro’s 3-0 week with a strong showing at the plate and two appearances on the mound. He went 3-for-4 against both Barnegat and Freehold Boro, including a go-ahead two-run single in the bottom of the sixth against Freehold. He also added a double in that game and tripled in the 8-5 win over Barnegat earlier in the week.
Aurin drew 45.5 percent of the nearly 20,000 votes cast, giving him a vote total of 9,051. That total beat out Henry Hudson senior Mike Mohr, who garnered 35.7 percent of the vote but still came up just under 2,000 votes shy of catcher Brunner.
