Congratulations to the North Division All-Stars, 9-0 Winners in the 2015 All-Star Game!
–As we’ve seen exhibited throughout the first half of the season, the Southern League North is loaded, top to bottom. The North side stars avenged three consecutive losses with a dominant performance in all aspects of the game (pitching: combined shutout, defense: no errors, offense: nine unanswered runs). Under the current format, it was the North’s 8th win in 11 tries.
–White Sox highly regarded multi-tool prospect Tim Anderson celebrated his 22nd birthday by securing MVP honors. The Barons shortstop doubled, tripled, scored a run and drove in a run from the leadoff spot. All of this came alongside a highlight defensive play to snuff out a potential South Division rally early in the ballgame. Happy Birthday indeed, Mr. Anderson.
–Cub’s first base prospect Dan Vogelbach’s three run blast was more than enough for the North Division. The Tennessee Smokies slugger gave the host division an early 3-0 advantage, they never looked back. For all the home runs we saw in the derby, the designated hitter’s 2nd inning shot would stand alone during game action.
–First half HR and RBI leader Adam Brett Walker II of the Lookouts shined again during the 2015 Home Run Derby. Nine homers across both sessions allowed the Twins prospect to easily claim the crown. The power display secured a second consecutive derby title for Walker, who left his mark on the Florida State League by wowing fans at their 2014 showcase.
–Welcome to the North Division Montgomery! The off-season switch of the Biscuits from the South to the North with Huntsville’s franchise move to Biloxi gave the North back to back home games and the league an outstanding All-Star event. Hometown manager Brady Williams pushed all the right buttons in leading his club’s new division to victory. Special thanks to everyone in the Biscuits organization for making every part of the All-Star Game festivities a true success.
