MiLB Photos of the Week

Each week, posts a collection of cool photos from around the minor leagues. This week, former Wayneboro General Michael Brosseau (2015) was the subject of two photos- both taken by Steve Roberts/Bowling Green Hot Rods.

By the way, Michael has just been called up to Charlotte of the Florida State League- he played in his first game there last night.

Photos of the Week

Every week, (that’s the official website for minor league baseball, for the uninitiated) posts a collection of fun photos that they call the “photos of the week.” Of course, ATVL watches for Valley League alumni every week, too. Months can pass with no pictures at all, and then a week like this comes around- when FOUR of the photos are of former players in the Valley!

Here are the photos from this week:

Two Named to Brooks Wallace Watch List

Two former Valley Leaguers have been named to the Brooks Wallace Shortstop of the Year “watch list,”¬†and in a strange twist, they were teammates in the Valley just last summer! (Both played for the Waynesboro Generals.)

The first player is Michael Brosseau, the shortstop at Oakland. Michael is currently hitting 340/440/549 in 162 at-bats for the Golden Grizzlies. Michael leads Oakland in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, run, hits, home runs, walks, and stolen bases. Wow.

The second is Ryan Gridley, who plays at Mississippi State. Ryan is hitting 284/342/347 in 146 at-bats for the Bulldogs.

Congrats to both! The winner will be announced on July 2nd- half way through the Valley League season!
