PBATS NAMES 2017 MINOR LEAGUE ATHLETIC TRAINERS OF THE YEAR

 

ATLANTA (Aug. 16, 2017) - President Mark O'Neal of the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS) today announced the winners of the Minor League Athletic Trainers of the Year Awards for the 2017 baseball season.

 

These awards are given annually to one member of each of the 16 leagues in Minor League Baseball, as well as one award for the Dominican Summer League. An additional award is given to the Minor League Coordinator of the Year.

 

"I'm thrilled to announce PBATS' Minor League Athletic Trainers of the Year," O'Neal said. "These athletic trainers have had such a huge impact on their organizations and have been named, by their peers, the best athletic trainer in their respective league. To win an award voted on by your peers is so important. It shows everyone around the league that you're working hard and doing your job with passion and amazing skill. I couldn't be happier to award these great athletic trainers for their hard work."

 

All 16 league winners, the Dominican Summer League winner and the Minor League Coordinator of the Year will now be eligible for the prestigious Minor League Athletic Trainer of the Year award voted upon by the full membership of PBATS. That award will be given at the 2017 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in Orlando, Fla.
