Alan Westfall has been one of the best overall players in the game during the last decade.
To commemorate the tenth year of PoliceSoftball.com we have started naming our “All-Decade” team which will be comprised of the best players, managers, and sponsors etc. that have made this last decade so special. We are announcing several names each month leading up to World Series X, where we will invite the All-Decade team to take the field and be recognized. For this month, here is who we have selected to be part of this team.
Ronnie Connor makes our list and was a no brainer for us. Ronnie is that rare player that made our 2010 All-Time Police Softball Team and was great enough to close out the first decade of PS.com and make the All-Decade team. Wherever Ronnie has gone, wins were sure to follow. From the great DEA and Quake teams of the past to the Sin City Combo and 40 Cal & Quake Master teams of the present, he has been a winner wherever he has played. Ronnie has three overall World Series titles under his belt and a former Player of the Year award and has been a human highlight film in the outfield for the last decade.
Makes this list as one of the toughest outs in police softball for the last decade. When the first decade of policesoftball.com started, Alan was a key player on the powerful Jacksonville PSC team and over the years, he has transitioned to SouthFlorida and most recently to D2E. Alan can play most positions on the field extremely well but he excels at the middle infield spots. Alan has been nominated as the EC Player of the Year on two separate occasions, and since he is still in his prime, this could be his year.
When the word power is looked up in the policesoftball.com dictionary, there is a photo of Double D smiling and swinging a big stick. PS.com has seen all the power hitters in the game and we do not believe there is a player in the game with more pure power with the stick than Double D. When the weather conditions shut down other strong hitters, Double D powers right through it and can be counted on to hit it through or over anything you need. A former PS.com Player of the Year, Double D typically plays catcher now days, but he will surprise you with his athleticism when you see him get a chance to play other positions. Double D played 6 years of minor league baseball as a pitcher and an outfielder and has one of the strongest arms on the circuit. A testament to his arm strength is his 73 strikeouts in 62 innings pitched as a minor league pitcher.
This concludes February's installment of the All-Decade Team. Look for our next additions to the team in March.
