A Prince George slugger is being recognized for a stellar summer.

Jared Young is the Chicago Cubs’ Minor League Player of the Year, after putting up impressive numbers at age 23.

“This will help me get stronger, which I can take into next year. When you’ve got another 140 games to play in the minor leagues, it’s about just being consistent and hoping to put up another good year.”

– Jared Young, PG Baseball player

Young batted .300, with 16 HRs & 76 RBIs, between the Single-A South Bend Cubs and Single-A Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

He will be honoured at Wrigley Field in Chicago during a pre-game ceremony on September 27th.
