With the 2012 baseball season in the books, former SwampDog Kevin Quackenbush has earned his place in the record books.
Quackenbush received the MiLBY Relief Pitcher of the Year award. His efforts in the hitter dominated California League (Class A Advanced) earned him the fan's choice for the 2012 season.
His dominance on the mound allowed him to finish the season with a 3-2 record with 27 saves. He threw 57.2 innings for the Lake Elsinore Storm with 70 strikeouts and a miniscule 0.94 ERA.
The University of South Florida righthander played for the SwampDogs during the 2009 season. He appeared in 14 games, starting six. He threw 42 innings fanning 39 batters while walking only 19.
"The SwampDogs are extremely proud to see Kevin receive this honor," said SwampDogs head coach Darrell Handelsman. "He is the type of kid that plays the game hard everyday. We're glad to see Quack continue to make his mark on the game."
