Beau Torbert Update: New Season, Same Team, New Name

Beau Torbert returns to Sioux Falls in 2010. The team changed their name from the Canaries to the Pheasants. The Pheasants are 11-3 so far this season and have the best record in the American Association. Beau has played in all fourteen games for Sioux Falls.

According to  Torbert is second in the league in hitting, batting .421 for the season. Beau is tied for fourth in the league in homers with four. Two Pheasants are in front of Beau in homers. They are Sing and Sheldon and they both have six dingers a piece. Beau is seventh in the league in runs batted in with 13.

Beau leads the team in hits with 17, doubles with 7, and runs scoring 17 times. In 2008 Beau was the leagues MVP. So far in 2010 Beau is in contention for another MVP award.  Hopefully, Beau won't miss as many games with injuries as he did last season. Last season injuries kept Beau from repeating as MVP.
