Matt Thomas from the Brookings Bandits legion baseball team was named the MVP of the Class A state tourament which ended Sunday in Aberdeen.
Thomas played a huge role in the Bandits winning the title. He pitched a complete game in a win over Rapid City Post 22 in the first game Sunday. Then threw two-innings of relief in the championship game win over Sioux Falls East.
Thomas also had three hits in the championship game.
For that performance, we salute Brookings Matt Thomas, as our KSFY/Taco John's Athlete of the Week.
