JD Perry quite simply, was the best centerfielder in the league.  After battling a hamstring injury that sidelined him for several weeks, Perry dominated the ACCC both offensively and defensively.  On the year, JD hit .389 with 2 homers, 19 RBI’s and 18 stolen bases.

 

With addition of Mitchell and Perry, this now makes 14 Pirates headed to the Division 1 level.
