Stuff the MiLBYs Ballot Box
Fan voting for the 2016 MiLBYs is underway where you can choose the best teams, players, videos, promos and more from across Minor League Baseball.
The Senators are nominated for the Promo of the Year with their Life-Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame where the team began a new tradition by recognizing the truly great players from their storied history. The first three inductees this season were Vladimir Guerrero, Cliff Floyd, and Bryce Harper.
Pitcher Reynaldo Lopez, who began the season in Harrisburg, was nominated for Breakout Prospect. Lopez had 14 starts with the Senators in 2016 and went 3-5 with a 3.18 ERA and 100 strikeouts in 76.1 innings pitched. The 22-year-old also made five starts at Triple-A Syracuse and 11 appearances with the Nationals while working his way to No. 38 in MLB.com’s overall ranking on the strength of an impressive fastball-curveball mix.
Former Senator Destin Hood is also up for a Top Home Run MiLBY for a bomb he hit as a member of the New Orleans Zephyrs. Hood’s mammoth blast in Memphis’ AutoZone Park caromed off a Ford pickup well beyond the left-field wall that players could win if they hit the bullseye next to the truck.
Voting continues until October 25th and you are allowed to vote as often as you’d like, so stuff the ballot box for the Senators!
