DALLAS, TEXAS (July 29, 2008) Bay Area Toros' outfielder Grant Massie and McKinney Blue Tunder pitcher Justin Drabek were selected as the Continental Baseball League's (CBL) Player and Pitcher of the Week ending July 28.

Massey had paced CBL batters with a .429 average, going 6-for-14 with one home run, driving in 4 runs and scoring 5. For the year, Massie is fifth in the league with a .295 average, and ranks second in runs scored with 35.

Drabek threw a complete-game three-hitter on Thursday against Bay Area in McKinney's 3-1 victory, his second time going the distance for the Blue Thunder. Drabek has posted a stingy 1.26 ERA in 43 innings for the season, striking out 27 while allowing just over one base runner per inning.

The honor is the first for Massie, while Drabek was also honored with the award on the week ending July 6.
