Florence Freedoms’ Austin Wobrock and Schaumbug Boomers’ Aaron Rozek are this week’s Frontier League Player and Pitcher of the Week, respectively as chosen by Pointstreak, the official statistical provider of the Frontier League and the Independent Professional Baseball Federation.
Austin Wobrock’s sixth season in the Frontier League is beginning well after a week of hitting .500 at the plate, with 4 RBIs, 9 hits, and 1.080 OPS for the third week of the season. Wobrock raised his batting average to .313 and 6 RBI for the 2019 campaign, as he continues to be a strong player for the Florence Freedom.
The California native starts his 6th season in the league, and his third with the Florence Freedom. Wobrock got his 337th hit and his 120th RBI in his award-winning week. The 27 year old looks to add to his solid career numbers this season. Wobrock joined the Frontier League in 2014 after his collegiate career at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Honolulu HI.
Aaron Rozek notched his first career professional complete game and shutout as he only gave up 4 hits, striking out 5, and walking no one against the Joliet Slammers on May 24th. Aaron looks to continue to build off his strong start, and beginning of the season. Rozeck has posted a 1-1 record in 3 starts with an ERA of 2.65 while striking out 13 batters.
Aaron Rozek begins his 2nd season in the Frontier league, and his 1st with the Schaumburg Boomers. The Burnsville Minnesota native attended Minnesota State University and joined the Frontier League in 2018. Rozek looks to build off his career start and continue his success in 2019.
