Hurricane Irene moved on, the sun came out and the DBAP filled with fans on Sunday afternoon. I know how relieved and elated Noah felt as the flood waters subsided!

As the Bulls' final homestand winds down, we awarded scholarships to graduating Post 50 seniors, and we announced the Goodmon Award winners:

Team Spirit goes to infielder Ray Olmedo. Pitcher of the Year is right-hander Rob Delaney. The MVP Community Service Award winner and Fan Favorite is Russ Canzler. (Read more; click here.)

$7500 in scholarship aid was awarded to members of our Post 50 program - the high school and college students that produce our TV broadcasts.
