To say Pittston Area’s Josh Savakinus is tearing the cover off the baseball would be the understatement of the season. But that is exactly what the senior shortstop is doing for the Patriots.
Savakinus was 7-for-10 in three games for PA last week with eight RBI and five runs scored.
For his effort, Josh has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week May 2-8.
Savakinus is hitting .594 on the season with 21 RBI and 21 runs scored. He also has five homers, five doubles and a triple among his 22 hits on the season.
Posters of Josh can be seen at Tony’s Pizza in Pittston, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
