Few careers have been as successful as Andrew Westcott's. He first came to the league as part of the very promising Sit On My Base squad headed up by then-captain Kevin Chattin in 2014. Not much was known about Westcott early on but one thing became clear, he could hit the ball! He hit .302, 7 HRs and 15 RBIs during that year. While that rookie season showed numbers lower compared to the rest of his career, if you take into account the elite level of pitching that season you'll find that .302 is above league average. And when he did hit, he hit when it counted most. During week 2 of the regular season he hit a walk-off shot against BagTag to seal the win and would have other big time hits that year. And his bat was a key factor in getting Sit On My Base to the championship where they would ultimately lose to the Honey Badgers. 

Finishing in second place would be a position that Westcott would become sadly accustomed to and even incorporated it into their 2015 jersey design the following year with "#runnerup" seen on the back of the jerseys. That sense of humor would carry throughout his career and broke tension in many big games throughout the five seasons he played. When he was not joking with teammates or talking with new players you could hear the unmistakable crack of his bat when he could send a ball out of the ballpark. Although he had a modest start in 2014 with the longball, he morphed into the league's most dominant home run hitter. He would finish his career with over 100 home runs (the only player to reach triple digits in this category) finishing his career with a total 109 home runs and typically finished each year as one of the league's top batters throughout all format changes. 

In 2015, he returned with a very stacked Sit On My Base team that merged with former Wee Willy Wiffle players Nick Kappra and Patrick Rayl. They had hopes of a championship and looked to be the team to take it. Finishing the regular season with a 19-1 record and an outrageous run differential of +181, Westcott and Sit On My Base were primed for gold. Westcott hit .577, 27 HRs & 68 RBIs while also have a 2-0 pitching record. He was a completely different player than he was in 2014 and one that easily made the all-star team that same summer. Sit On My Base would find themselves again in the league championship but this time against the formidable Breaking Balls. A severe thunderstorm interrupted the game and they finished the it in dramatic fashion ankle deep in mud and would fall to the Breaking Balls to finish their second consecutive year as runner up. But he did win his first award, taking HR King. 

In 2016 the league turned away from fast pitch to slow-pitch tournament style. Westcott again found himself building a team bound for greatness and was hoping to finally finish in the top position. Westcott was a top 5 hitter that year hitting .694 with 26 HRs & 40 RBIs. With the format being very hitter friendly it was assumed that Westcott's numbers would swell and eclipse his 2015 stats but he did not participate in all tournaments so he had less at bats to hit the long ball. But personal accolades were not on his agenda as the team finally won a league championship that year, he took Sit On My Base from paper tigers to the top spot after just missing the mark two years in a row.

In 2017, the league entered the draft era and Westcott was the first to elect to become a captain and created Saved By The Balls. He created many logos during his career but Saved By The Balls (SBTB) would be his magnum opus. People were so pleased with the name and logo that the league team that was sent to NWLA Regionals donned the same name and jerseys. Despite drafting one of the leanest rosters, Westcott took the team to the top spot and finished with another championship due to his superior drafting and leadership skills. The half fast and half slow format was not kind to his offensive abilities but he made up for it on the mound by winning Cy Wiffle. 

Sit On My Base reunited in 2018 and Westcott was in peak form, having his best season at the plate. He dominated pitchers, hitting 36 home runs, 80 RBIs and a .559 AVG and claiming that year's HR King award as well as Bronze Slugger. He also pitched a career high 23 2/3 innings and striking out 15 batters, displaying a lesser-known skill he possessed. Again, Westcott would find himself in the championship but would fall against the Mothmen and missing his chance at a three-peat championship but instead having to settle for being runner up for a third time. Despite this, he is one of the winningest team captains in league history and has never been on a team that fell below second place and never NOT made it to a championship game and he is the only common denominator of an ever-changing roster. Westcott is considered by many as the best hitter in league history and when you look at his numbers overall, you'd be hard pressed to argue otherwise.
