5'10", 148 lb, L/L
W/L: 5-0 IP: 47 K: 78 ERA: 0.89
Left-handed ace and area ERA champ won half of his team’s games, and he could have won more if not for low run support and bullpen blowups. He handed Boonville its only conference loss in the North Central Missouri and allowed no earned runs in another meeting with the Pirates. With only 10 walks on the season, Haynes struck out nearly eight batters for every walk allowed.
