Missoula, MT. - With the off-season underway, the Missoula PaddleHeads announced today that the 2023 Pioneer League Pitcher of The Year, Alfredo Villa, has re-signed for the 2024 season. Alfredo Villa led the league in ERA, wins, and strikeouts in the 2023 season, finishing with 129 strikeouts and holding a record of 13-1.

With last year's impressive statistics, PaddleHeads Manager Michael Schlact is excited to have him back and had this to say about his re-signing:

"We are so excited to have the reigning pitcher of the year & triple crown winner coming back to pitch for us this season. In addition to his on-field accolades, who he is both as a person and a teammate makes Alfredo a true ace."

In 2023 he managed a .282 ERA, a 13-1 record, and a league-leading 129 strikeouts in 108 2/3 innings pitched. He became the first pitcher to win the Triple Crown in the Pioneer League since Ricardo Rodriguez won it in 2000, over 23 years ago.
