GCL Yankees Win Championship

Today was the final game in the GCL Championship and the Yankees, lead by Dante Bichette Jr. took the crown.  Here is an article about it.  Good to see a Yankee affiliate take home the Championship and hopefully it will lead to some good players coming out of that team.  Since there season is now over I will do their update a day before I do all the rest since tomorrow is the first day of September.

GCL Yankees
Record: 37-23 1st in the North Division of the Golf Coast League and now Champions of the League
Top Prospects:
Dante Bichette Jr. .342 Average, 3 HRs, 17 Doubles, 33 Runs, 47 RBIs in 52 games.
Justin James .230 Average, 6 Doubles, 15 Runs, 10 RBIs in 25 games
Matt Duran .301 Average, 3 HR, 13 Runs, 17 RBIs in 23 games. 

Hopefully with their season over some players such as Dante Bichette Jr. and Matt Duran will be called up so they can get a few more games in before the offseason.
