Sets new record in final regular season game
It may have been a disappointing season for the Kansas City Scouts but one Scout who exceeded expectations this year is second baseman Albert Castro. Castro went 1-5 in the Scouts final game of the season against the Phantoms to break The Bigs' single season record for hits. The 29-year-old notched 218 hits during the season, besting the old record of 217 set by Norfolk's Melvin Nakano during season 2.
Season 9 was the definition of a career year for Castro. The 218 hits is 52 more than he's ever posted in a single season and his season batting average of .340 is 52 points higher than his previous career best of .288, posted in season 5.
