Princeton RaysOver the next few weeks I will recap the 2009 season of each affiliate. This week will focus on the overall season, next week will cover the hitting leaders and the final week will be pitching leaders. Like the week in reviews earlier in the season, each day will bring attention to a different affiliate as we work our way through the franchise. Today we take a look at the overall team stats of the Princeton Rays.

  1. The K/BB ratio of better than 3:1 is very impressive for the Appy League. Kudos to Marty DeMerritt.
