Whitecaps’ Suarez strikes Gold

The West Michigan Whitecaps shortstop Eugenio Suarez was impressive with his bat this season, finishing 10th in the Midwest League in batting with a .288 average and was second in the league with 147 hits. Oh, by the way, this kid seems to be pretty capable with his glove, too. Suarez became the first Whitecaps player to be honored with the Rawlings Gold Glove Award given out by Minor League Baseball and the Rawlings Sporting Good Company for his defensive excellence. Only nine players in all of Minor League ball are given this honor each season. Suarez played 119 games at short stop for West Michigan with a .971 fielding percentage and was part of 80 double plays. He only made 18 errors in 624 chances as well as going 15 games without an error while played second base. At least us Whitecaps fans can brag about having the best short stop in the Minors this season! The fact that he’s a switch hitter along with his stats and awards, make him one of the top prospects in the Detroit Tigers‘ system. He is only 21, as this was his first full season of professional baseball, after being signed out of Venezuela and splitting time between two short season/rookie leagues. It’s going to be fun watching him move up through the system, especially with the Tigers lack of middle infielders.

The Greatest Minor League Baseball Blog of All Time

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
