Chicago, Ill. – Aug. 15, 2020 – The Midwest Collegiate League announced its final set of weekly award winners for the 2020 season on Saturday afternoon.

Based on performances over the final week of the regular season (Aug. 10-14), Ryan Missal (Western Michigan / Lowell, Ind.) of the MCL Minutemen was named the league’s Player of the Week, while Dylan White (University of Chicago / Danville, Calif.) of Crestwood was named MCL Pitcher of the Week.

Missal went 5-for-12 (.417) over the final week of the season, launching a pair of home runs and driving in eight. He scored four times and posted a .452 on-base percentage for the week while slugging .917.

White pitched six innings of scoreless relief on Tuesday against the MCL Minutemen to earn the victory and help the Panthers stay alive in the playoff chase. He yielded just one hit and fanned five to shrink his season ERA to 1.59.
