Today’s Edition: Evan “Psych” Sibbet
Psych has been a Wifflin for Wishes regular since his middle school days along with Dodger Dave and Fez. Thanks to Twitter, Epstein sent a DM free agent offer in Fall 2016 and the rest is history. He played his rookie season in 2017, winning rookie of the year.
He didn't stop at ROY. Last season he won Eagan MVP, which he considers the highlight of his wiffleball career. He also made noise with the HRL All Stars at the National Wiffleball Tournament in Michigan last summer, where he hit a game winning single off one of the best pitchers in country. He carries a .373 career average and 2.20 ERA, which hopefully will carry the Dodgers to their first Cup in 2019.
Psych has grown up fast in the league. He earned his nickname due to the competitive fire displayed in his rookie season, but has quickly learned the value of camaraderie and brotherhood in the league. He plays in the HRL “to help grow the game and make memories with everyone involved.” No doubt he will be a face in the league for years to come.
Psych has taken deep interest into the history of the league. He will frequently reference the record books, old youtube videos, and stat pages at the rinks. If he could make an all time HRL dream team it would consist of Tugboat, The Man, Sticks, Seuss, and Mippey.
