Baseball term of the day: bleeder – a batted ball that, as the result of an erratic roll, pop, bad bounce, or overall slowness, becomes a base hit
(term from The Dickson Baseball Dictionary)
The first round of off-season awards are beginning to come in for the RoughRiders. Yesterday we talked about Jurickson Profar being named Low-A Player of the Year by Baseball America, and while the ‘Riders don’t have anything of quite that prestigious, there are certainly some awards of note.
Best Texas League Visiting Clubhouse
We all know there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes in minor league baseball, but there might not be a pair of guys that work harder than C.J. Allen and Philip Fleitman, the ‘Riders Clubhouse Managers. Thanks to their efforts, the RoughRiders won Best Texas Visiting Clubhouse for the second-straight season. These are the two guys that make sure both teams are fed both before and after all home games, do all the laundry, and a LOT more. Congrats to C.J. and Philip. Here’s a pic of the two of them taking some batting practice after the season was over. I’m pretty sure photo credit goes to ‘Riders lefty, Corey Young.

The Dallas Observer recently announced it’s 2011 “Best of” awards, and the RoughRiders won the award for “Best Cheap Seats” in Dallas. They loved how inexpensive our tickets were compared to the local competition (Rangers, Cowboys, Mavs, etc.), and they really loved the swimming pool!
