AA Jackson Generals
Lead by Baseball of America’s Player of the Year, Tyler O’Neil -who lead the league in RBI and was second in home runs- the Generals took charge all season long. The effort put in by the entire team earned them a Southern League title.
Aside from O’Neil, other players like Benji Gonzalez excelled as well. Gonzalez would finish the season with the second most doubles in the SL. Leon Landry would have the second most triples in the league by the end of the year as well.
Not to be left out, the speedster, Ian Miller was second in the SL in steals. He was caught three times in fifty-two attempts.
As for the arms, Ryan Yarbrough lead the way. His 2.95 ERA and 1.11 WHIP were second best in the SL. He would finish the season with a record of 12-4 because of it. But one man can’t go it alone. The efforts of Paul Blackburn and Patrick Johnson helped the Generals have the third lowest ERA in the league.
