Rebyanski Named Manager of the Year!
BlueSox manager Anthony Rebyanski was named the Prospect League's Manager of the Year, for the role he played
in Butler's all-time high 40 wins and their first trip to the post-season this summer.
Butler concluded the season with a 17-2 run, including an all-time League record of 11 straight victories,
to win the season's second half and qualify for the playoffs. A former pitcher himself, Rebyanski helped coach Butler's staff
to a League-leading 2.51 ERA. They also topped the League with 456 strikeouts.
One of the strongest members of that staff was Adam Bleday who was voted the League's left-handed Pitcher
of the Year. Coming off his freshman year at the University of Virginia, Bleday ranked second in the League with a 1.65 ERA,
with 58 striketouts and 23 walks over 54.1 innings.
The season was Rebyanski's fourth as manager. He had guided Butler to 33 wins in each of the past two seasons.
They fell one game short of a playoff berth in 2013.
Chillicothe Paints' outfielder Ronnie Dawson was voted the Mike Schmidt Player of the Year and the Roland
Hemond Pro Prospect of the Year.
