Winnipeg Goldeyes infielder Amos Ramon has been named the American Association’s 2012 playoff MVP.
The 29-year-old led the Goldeyes with a .467 batting average, two home runs and nine RBI in the six games during the playoffs.
“Amos always came up with the big hit when we needed it,” Goldeyes manager Rick Forney said. “After battling back from all the injuries he has gone through during the last two seasons and the way he played in the playoffs, he is very deserving of this award.”
Despite missing a month of the season with a separated shoulder, Ramon batted .281 with four home runs and 35 RBI in 71 games.
During the game last Friday that won the Fish the league championship, Ramon had a two-for-four night and drove in a run in the five-run second inning Winnipeg had, which led the championship-clinching victory.
