Week 7 Player & Pitcher of the Week

Caleb Dameron
PBR Colorado Staff

Each week during the high school season, the PBR Colorado staff will announce our 'Players of the Week' awards for that particular week. Numerous players from across the state will continue to perform and put up numbers weekly, though only one position player and one pitcher can take home this award each week. Below you'll see which players have earned our 'Player of the Week' honor this spring season. We will also highlight those that fell short in our weekly 'Diamond Notes' article, where you can learn more about the standout names across the CHSAA.

NOTE: These submissions were provided from high school coaches from around our state. If you are a coach and interested in nominating a player, please contact Josh Reynolds ([email protected]).



Finley Bates SS / 3B / Douglas County, CO / 2023

The San Diego State commit had himself a week going 10 for 12 with 14 RBI, 7 runs scored, 2 home runs, a double, and 2 triples across three games. Bates also hit for the cycle in the Huskies' win over Castle View. The senior is an easy pick for week 7 player of the week, and he has now gotten his batting average up to .526 on the season with 4 homers, and a 1.673 OPS. 




Ethan Dillinger LHP / Erie, CO / 2023

Dillinger only needed 55 pitches to finish off a shortened perfect game against the Northglenn Norse, going 5 innings with 7 Ks, no walks, no runs, and zero hits allowed. The Erie Tigers won this game 10-0 but Dillinger stayed focused and perfect for his team despite the blowout. The Air Force commit has racked up 42 Ks in 26 innings this year to go with his 3.50 ERA.
