THANKS for another great season. Although we didn't win "it all", we accomplished a great deal, and you helped us get there! We have in the past 7 seasons accomplished the following: 5 playoff appearances; 4 division titles, 3 Governors' Cup titles; 2 Triple-A National Championships; & EVERY year over 600,000 in paid attendance. Thanks and we will see you next year, the 9th season at beautiful Huntington Park !!!
For the third consecutive season, the Columbus Clippers claimed the International League West Division crown. The Cleveland Indians Triple-A affiliate finished the regular season with an 82-62 record, claiming their 16th division title since becoming a franchise in 1977.
Yandy Diaz has claimed the 2016 Rookie of the Year Award. The 25-year-old Cuban native is tied for the League lead with a .322 batting average and paces the circuit outright in on-base percentage at .396. Blossoming into one of the League's top offensive threats, Diaz reeled off a 28-game hitting streak lasting though most of July and early-August. Since the All-Star Break, Diaz has hit .335 to propel the Clippers to a West Division title. PRESS RELEASE
