Catcher Noah Cardenas has been a key part of the Foresters all summer, but last week, he really stepped up his game and earned Player of the Week honors. The UCLA backstop’s defense is outstanding, and he has masterfully handled the Santa Barbara pitching staff. In the past week, he showed off his offensive skills, too. After notching three two-out RBI last Sunday, he hit .563 and scored six runs. He also knocked in four and even stole three bases. Cardenas will play a key role for the Sters as they start NBC World Series this week in Wichita, Kansas.
