PC: Corey Mansfield/Brokenbatblog.com (@Broken_Bat_Blog)

The Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League has announced that Troy Dixon of the Elmira Pioneers and Nolan Freeman of the Utica Blue Sox have received the first Player and Pitcher of the Week awards of the 2016 season.
 
Dixon, who attends Samford University, finished the first week of the season with a .353 batting average to go alongside two home runs and seven RBIs. He leads the league in both of the latter categories. Through four games, Dixon has a 1.095 OPS and a .706 slugging percentage. His best game of the season came on Opening Night when he hit the two home runs and drove in six in Elmira’s 11-4 win over Adirondack.
 
The Samford product appeared in 32 games this season for the Bulldogs and scored 13 runs. He drove in eight runs and had eight walks. Dixon becomes the second straight Elmira Pioneer to be named Player of the Week for the first week as eventual league MVP Christian Santisteban earned the honor last year.
 
Nolan Freeman of Utica has been named Pitcher of the Week after tossing a complete game shutout Saturday night against Oneonta. In the righty’s spectacular effort, he struck out eight batters and allowed just three hits. The outing kept Utica’s perfect season alive as they’re currently 3-0 on the young campaign.
 
The Mercyhurst North East product tossed a team-leading 60 innings for the Saints. He averaged 10.20 strikeouts per nine innings. Freeman won eight games during the collegiate season as he appeared in 16 games, starting 10.
