Three G-Stros up for MILB Game of the Year Awards

MILB let's fans vote on a number of awards every year.  They currently have the ballots up for "Best Game of the Year" at each level.  Three former G-Stros are mentioned in these awards.  Here is your chance to show your support for these outstanding performances.

First of all we have Chris Wallace & Telvin Nash sending balls out of McCormick field in Asheville like they were candy canes at a Christmas parade.  Back in April Telvin & Chris each went 5-for-6 with three homers, a double and four runs scored. You can read more about the game here. And  vote for them here.

Later in the season, Josh Magee had an amazing run of getting a hit in 12 straight at bats for Greeneville. I know the award is for "Best Game" but Magee's outstanding performance stretched over three games.  He went 5-5 and 4-4 in back to back games and then got three hits in the next game before striking out going for hit number 13.  You can read about the streak here and vote here.  

Let's support our former G-Stros - Vote early & often!
