Beau Knows Awards

Beau was named the American Association Player of the Year. He was also named the player of the month for August. Beau Torbert and the Sioux Falls Pheasants can aslo add a Northern Division pennant to their awards. The team is waiting for the American Association Finals.  Here is a link to a great article about Beau and his awards.(Also the source for this blog)

Beau Torbert also won his second American Association MVP Award, his first one he won in 2008. Injuries held him back from winning one last year but he bounced back well this year. The Pheasants Manager Bob Shirley won the manager of the year award just like he did in 2008. Here is a link to that article.

Also from that article here are some records Beau set along the way..
"He won the batting title with a .394 batting average, the highest in both league and team history.""His 100 RBI was tops in the league and set a new team record.""Torbert amassed 155 hits this season, breaking the previous league record (148) and team record (136) for hits in a season.""Torbert also set a team record for doubles in a season and a league record for total bases on one season. " Needless to say Beau had one heck of a season in the American Association, hopefully Torbert and the Pheasants can top it off with a championship.
