Meanwhile, four members of the Florence Y’alls organization earned Frontier League Post-Season Awards, as announced by the league on Thursday afternoon.
Clubhouse manager Kee Stewart earned the Sam Hartsfield Award for Clubhouse Manager of the Year.

Pintor is currently in the top-ten of the Frontier League in batting average, has 19 doubles, six home runs and 42 RBIs despite missing two weeks due to injury.
Sedio leads the Y’alls in batting average, leads the league in doubles, is in the top five in slugging percentage and has over 100 hits on the 2021 season.
Craport holds a large lead in the league’s RBI race with nine more than second place. The catcher has 18 home runs, 17 stolen bases, a batting average of .311 and is seventh in the Frontier League in base hits.
All awards were voted on by general managers, managers, coaches, broadcasters, and media members from around the Frontier League.
