EU alum earns ‘Rookie of the Year’ honors
The Pensacola Pelicans are pleased to announce that Chase Porch has been awarded the 2010 American Association Rookie of the Year honors voted on by the league managers and media representatives. Porch signed with the Pelicans in late May after finishing his college career at the University of North Alabama and provided an immediate impact in the starting lineup.
The 6’1, 195 pound right-handed hitter finished this season batting .286 with four homeruns and 40 RBI on the year. The East Union, Mississippi native stole nine bases and has been a huge asset in the outfield with a strong arm and great speed to flag down balls all season long. Porch who was only one of 48 people in his high school graduating class sported a 14-game hitting streak from May 29th to June 14th. A few days later, Porch had an eight game-hitting streak from June 18th to June 25th. The man who wears a number two on his back had his best game in a Pelican jersey on June 16th where he went for 4-for-5 with three runs scored and two RBI against the El Paso Diablos. The rookie sensation has had 23 multi-hit games this season.
Chase Porch will be a big key factor in the Pelicans playoff series coming up with the Shreveport-Bossier Captains where he is batting .367 with two homeruns and 12 RBI against them.
