2012 Year in Review: Princeton Rays (Overall)

Over the next few weeks I will recap the 2012 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 made a late season run at the playoffs but fell short, finishing the 2012 season in third place with a 36-32 record. The P-Rays won the Mercer Cup this season, beating the Bluefield Blue Jays in the annual rivalry series. Lefty Blake Snell was named the Appalachian League Pitcher of the Year as well as the P-Rays lone Appalachian League All-Star for 2012.
