Mizuno Player & Pitcher of the Week: Week 8

Matt Miller
State Director

Each week during the high school season, we will be announcing the Mizuno Pitcher and Player of the Week for that particular week. Numerous players across the state continue to put up impressive numbers both as position players and pitchers on the mound. This year we will be selecting one Pitcher of the Week and one Player of the Week based on nominations from high school coaches across the state. Thanks to Mizuno for sponsoring both awards this season. 

Check out our Scout Blog HERE for games our staff was able to get out and see this past week.  

Thanks to the many high school coaches that sent in nominations this week.  

Be on the lookout tomorrow for our Diamond Notes article that will highlight other players around the state who also had noteworthy performances.

Let's take a look at the Mizuno Player and Pitcher of the Week for Week 8 (April 1-7).



Aiden Swales C / 2B / Pisgah, MS / 2024

The Hinds CC recruit had a great week going 7 for 8 with 2 home runs, while scoring 5 runs and driving in another 8. It's the second time this season Swales has earned the Prep Baseball Mississippi Player of the Week honor. 



Wes Pritchard LHP / 1B / Lamar School, MS / 2024
