The Winnipeg Goldeyes have been named the Organization of the Year for the 2013 season by the American Association.
As voted on by the league’s 13 managers and media members, it marks the third consecutive season the Goldeyes have won the award.
“It’s an honour to once again be recognized by our brothers in the American Association for this award,” Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier said. “It’s a credit to the amount of time and effort our front office staff puts in throughout the year and the amazing support we receive from our great fans.”
Winnipeg once again led the American Association and all independent baseball teams in attendance with an average crowd of 5,880 fans per game in 2013. On the field, the Goldeyes finished with the fourth-best record in the league at 56-44, but fell two-and-a-half games short of making the playoffs.
