2011 Year in Review: Bowling Green Hot Rods (Overall)

Over the next few weeks I will recap the 2011 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 Bowling Green Hot Rods.

The Bowling Green Hot Rods made their first playoff apperance in franchise history by clinching the division in the first half. Their playoff run was cut short as they were swept in the first round but not before compiling the best record in franchise history. They also sent a team record four players to the all-star game with Derek Dietrich, CJ Riefenhauser, Eliazer Suero and Phil Winderlich getting named to the all-star squad.
