At least one Yankees affiliate team had a great 2013 season. The Trenton Thunder were named MiLB.com “Team of the Year” following a three week voting period earlier this month. The Minor League “Team of the Year” award is part of the annual “MiLBY” Awards which are presented by MiLB.com each fall.
The Trenton Thunder were the champions of the Eastern League after winning the Eastern League Wild Card during the season. This was their third championship title in the 20 seasons they’ve been in Trenton, all three championships under the management of Tony Franklin.
The Thunder are up for two other “MiLBY” awards. The retirement party for mascot Chase (who sadly passed away a few days after the retirement party) was a nominee for “Promotion of the Year” and the tribute video for Chase was nominated for “Mascot Clip of the Year”.
Congratulations to the Trenton Thunder on a successful 2013 season!
