You know the web site called MyGameBalls.com, right? If not, think of it as Facebook for ballhawks. Anyway, the web site recently held a vote for two awards:
1) Ballhawk of the Year
2) Junior Ballhawk of the Year
My fellow New Yorker, Alex K., took the “junior” award, so congrats to him. If you have a few minutes to spare, check out his profile and read the article about his achievement. Props to Aaron King and Joe Faraguna for finishing in second and third place, respectively.
As for the “adult” Ballhawk Of The Year…it turns out that it was me. Here’s a screenshot of the beginning of the article:
Thanks to everyone who voted, and thanks to Alan Schuster who runs the site. It’s an awesome place to share photos and stats and blog URLs and email addresses. BTW, here’s the article about my award, and here’s my profile (which Alan kindly helped me set up earlier in the year). Congrats to Erik Jabs who finished in second place with a monster season performance of over 400 balls, and to Greg Barasch who put up some mighty fine stats of his own and finished in third place.
