    From today’s Vicksburg Post; “Justin Henry, former Vicksburg High and Ole Miss star was the Eastern League Player of the Week for the Detroit Tigers Class AA affliliate, the Erie Sea Wolves for the week of May 9-15. He hit .464 with five runs, and three stolen bases and is second in the league in batting average hitting .368.”

    I may add Henry plays a mean second base and is leading the Sea Wolves in hitting too.
