Players of the Day for May 18, 2022 – Lots of Early Action Provided All 3 Awards

The best way to describe today’s schedule would be weird. Three of the four Cubs affiliates played late this morning and early this afternoon. By 3 o’clock central time, Iowa, South Bend, and Myrtle Beach head all won games. That left Tennessee is the only game to...
