Going back to when they were in the Northern League (1994-2010) this is their eighth title in the past 11 seasons.
Goldeyes GM Andrew Collier credits the staff and the fans in making 2013 a memorable season.
“It’s an honour to once again be recognized by our brothers in the American Association for this award,” Goldeyes GM Andrew Collier said in a release. “It’s a credit to the amount of time and effort our front office staff puts in throughout the year and the amazing support we receive from our great fans.”
The Goldeyes are a special team. To be this consistent over such a period of time is credit to management, ownership and a solid fan base that continually shows up game after game.
Independent Baseball rarely gets the credit its deserves, but the Goldeyes are consistently one of the best run franchises in all of baseball. Eight times voted Organization of the Year is no joke. And when you compare their attendance to the other 300 or so professional minor league clubs, they rank 26, with 5,880 per game (courtesy BallparkBiz.com), and led all 48 independent teams.
To put this into context, the Goldeyes trail the Rochester Red Wings, a triple-A team, by only 218 fans per game.
This team is the cream of the crop, and has stood the test of time-something not many indy ball clubs have done. Canada is not just a hockey country, it's Goldeyes country.
