Dundie, MiLBY, same thing…

(PR) Minor League Baseball, the governing body for affiliated professional baseball, named the Trenton Thunder, the Double A affiliate of the New York Yankees, the winner of the Minor League Baseball Yearly Award (MiLBY) for the Best Team at the Double-A level. The announcement was made on http://www.milb.com on Monday, October 27.
