Following an exciting return of baseball to Cape Cod, the Falmouth Commodores first Player of the Week for this season is none other than Michael Curialle. The middle infielder and outfielder from UCLA has had a tremendous start to the season, since the Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) returned to action this summer.
Between June 20 and June 27, Curialle started all six of the Commodores’ games thus far, averaging .333, hitting two doubles, collecting three walks and nine runs batted in. He also hit a grand slam on June 23 at home against Bourne, which was the ‘Dores first home run of the season.
Curialle was thrilled to hear that he was chosen to be the first ‘Dores Player of Week.
“It feels great,” Curialle said. “We came out strong winning games, having fun doing it, so it was good.”
Curialle was able to show how quickly he settled into the Falmouth lineup.
“I just stayed prepared before I came here,” Curialle said. “I kept getting my work in and just doing a lot of things right.”
Curialle discussed how he plans to continue his success the rest of the season.
“I’m just going to stick with my routine before the game, and during the game,” Curialle said. “I’ll stick with my approach, what’s been working, and learn from mistakes and build on it.”
