Eddie is an outstanding player who we received in a mid-season trade. Without him, we would not be in contention for first place in the division. stated manager Al Gallagher.
Eddie had six multi-hit games from July 18 to July 26, and had at least one RBI in each of those games. He has a total of 13 multi-hit games for the month that helped the T-Bones to their first winning month this season (14-12). He ended the month with a ten game hitting streak from July 18th to July 30th, and had hits in 16 of 17 games from July 10th to July 30th. Eddie is among the league leaders in average, RBIs, and hits. He is hitting an impressive .347 since coming to the T-Bones.
The Kansas City fans have a great love for Eddie, and he always receives a round of cheers every time he is up to bat.
After every game there is a flock of children asking Eddie for his autograph, he patiently signs all of their souvenirs. We are very fortunate to have a player who is so talented and so conscientious of his fans, stated Jennifer Olson, media relations director.
