While you’re here tonight, make sure you stop by the souvenir store to cast your vote for the Bees’ Player of the Year, sponsored by The Drake Restaurant & Bar.
You can choose from the four candidates, listed below with their season stats, or you can write in your selection.
.289 average, 115 games, 50 runs, 121 hits, 23 doubles, 3 home runs, 43 RBI, and 26 stolen bases.
Last week, a separated shoulder sidelined Joe for 2007. During the middle of the season, Joe wielded a hot bat, stringing together a 17-game hitting streak and setting a franchise mark by reaching base safely in 35 games.
#44 Third Baseman
.223 average, 101 games, 34 runs, 81 hits, 21 doubles, 19 home runs, 53 RBI
Along with since-departed pitcher Tyler Chambliss, Michael was one of the Bees’ two representatives at the 2007 Midwest League All-Star Game. The power hitter’s 19 homers are the most by a Bee since Darron Ingram belted 29 a decade ago.
#11 Right-Handed Pitcher
6-4, 2.65 ERA, 39 games, 6 saves, 71.1 innings, and 50 strikeouts
Aaron overcame a rough start to quietly become one of the pitching staff’s most reliable arms. He put together 20 straight scoreless innings, mostly in middle relief.
#18 Right-Handed Pitcher
4-4, 3.24 ERA, 41 games, 11 saves, 66.2 innings, and 48 strikeouts
In his second season in Burlington, Chris has posted a 1.74 ERA in the second half while climbing up the franchise’s career charts. The popular submariner is third all-time in career appearances (85) and tied for fourth in saves (18).
Tonight’s your last chance to vote. We’ll announce the winning player tomorrow on Fan Appreciation Night.
