Let’s switch from asking questions about the 2012 season focusing on the team to questions about individual players. It would be too easy to ask who led the Mud Hens in home runs (right?), so today’s question asks who finished second on the team in home runs in 2012?
The answer to Thursday’s question? One of the Mud Hens’ catchers ranked among the International League in stolen base percentage –- more specifically, he ranked among the leaders in percentage of base-stealers caught stealing. Which catcher was it? Bryan Holaday ranked fifth among IL catches by throwing out 25 of 73 would-be base-stealers, or 34.2 percent. For those wondering, Rob Brantly (since traded to the Marlins) threw out seven of 28, or 25 percent; Brad Davis threw out five of 19, or 26.3 percent; and Omir Santos threw out six of 30, or 20 percent.
