Bowman AFL Player of the Week
Shawn Bowman was recognized as the Player of the Week for the first week of the AFL season. The 23-year-old, right-handed-hitting third baseman contributed a double and his second home run of the fall season to the 5-2 victory the Peoria Saguaros scored against the Peoria Javelinas on Monday. That production put Bowman at the top of the league's hitters in batting average (.545), slugging percentage (1.273) and home runs (two other players have hit two as well).

He also ranks ranks third in on-base percentage (.615) and extra-base hits (four). A native of New Westminster, British Columbia, Bowman was the Mets' 12th-round selection in the 2002 First-Year Player Draft. He was the 357th player selected.
