Top honors in all categories went to the Sharks’ dynamic duo of Jose Munoz and Jose Martinez, with Munoz winning the MVP award for 2017.
Jury’s statement for MVP:
“A player who makes the defensive plays normally only seen in the MLB, who is always focused at the plate and continuously creates problems for opposing pitchers. When he is not knocking in runs, he is scoring them himself. With more practice, there is no limit to how good he could be.”

When Jose Martinez was the pitcher of record, the Sharks were unstoppable. Martinez went 4-0 on the season with 35 strikeouts in 36 innings.
