2011 Year in Review: Princeton Rays (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 Princeton Rays.

The Princeton Rays finished the 2011 season with a 30-38 record, placing them in fourth place in the division at the seasons end. The P-Rays surrendered the Mercer Cup this season after losing to their new opponent, the Bluefield Blue Jays. Taylor Motter represented the P-Rays by being named to the 2011 Appalachian League All-Star team.
