His status grew today as the ace pitcher was named the winner of the 2088 Circus League Outstanding Hitter Award.
"I just want to pitch well and win games," he said. "The awards are nice though."
Turner's award-winning season saw him put up a 15-4 record through 25 starts, throwing 153.1 innings. He had 204 strikeouts with 81 walks and a 2.00 ERA. Opponents hit only .158 against him during the season.
Jackson Selected 2088 BL Outstanding Hitter Award Friday, October 1st, 2088 Ray Jackson has visions of big money next year. And why shouldn't he? He did everything Maryland asked of him in 2088 and even exceeded the expectations of some in the final year of his contract. He might or might not re-sign with Maryland, but he's certainly earned the right to demand a big deal by wrapping up the Butterball League's Outstanding Hitter Award today.
He clobbered the opposition with 126 hits, 15 doubles, 2 triples, 54 home runs and 113 RBI, while hitting .311 and scoring 91 runs.
