NL's Best Player, Medwick of St. Louis
Monday, May 15th, 1939
At the age of 27, Joe Medwick might have some potential he hasn't realized yet -- if his success at the plate last week is any indication. The St. Louis left fielder put up some exceptional numbers the past seven days with a .438 batting average. For his efforts Medwick collected the National League Player of the Week Award.

He racked up 14 hits in 32 at-bats, 3 home runs and 13 RBIs last week in 7 games.

To date this season Medwick is hitting .300 with 5 home runs.
