Prospects' Trivia
by Len Nunes

We are in the last month of this decade. That statement makes me feel reminiscent. The baseball fan in me wondered out loud who the Edmonton Prospects leaders have been throughout the past 10 years. Let’s travel down memory lane as we categorize some of the individual bests by players who have worn the Prospects uniform.

The numbers reflected are single season totals with the year the feat was accomplished in brackets. The Western Canadian Baseball League website only provides stats back until 2010, therefore unofficially these stats represent single season benchmarks for the Prospects. 

Do you recall some of the names on the lists? Do you have memories you would like to share with us? Let us know on our Facebook or Twitter.
