J.C. Boscan picks up Southern League award

Boscan, JC 8021 500px.jpg

Veteran Atlanta Braves farm hand J.C. Boscan has been named Southern League hitter of the week.
I’ve photographed J.C. so often that he always recognizes me now and asks how I’m doing. Last time I saw him we almost bumped into each other in the tunnel under the Braves’ Spring Training facility. I was heading for the field and he was grabbing bats from an equipment closet.
The award from the league said, “The Maracaibo, Venezuela, native had five multi-hit games and also drove in at least one run in each contest [last week]. His .550 average over the last week led the league by nearly 100 points and he ranked second in doubles (4) and slugging percentage (.750).”
I hope this is the start of many honors for this great guy. I’d like to bump into him again . . . in Atlanta.
