Zack Cozart
June 2010 - Shortstop Zack Cozart, then of the Louisville Bats.
Cozart, now the Reds’ starting shortstop, has been the best defensive shortstop in Major League Baseball this year, according to Fangraphs.  Probably doesn’t hit well enough to win a Gold Glove, alas.

Yohan Flande
May 13, 2013 - Starting pitcher Yohan Flande on the mound for the AAA Gwinnett Braves.
Flande is starting for the Colorado Rockies tonight.  He’s only in the big leagues because of the many injuries suffered by the Rockies pitching corps, but he’s pitched pretty well, all things considered.

Moonrise Over The NBT Bank Stadium Parking Lot

It was about 45 minutes before the first pitch of the first playoff game Syracuse has hosted in forever.  I was amazed at the turnout.  Usually there’s plenty of good seats still available for Chiefs games.  Only a few rows right in front of the main gate are needed.  This time, I ended up parked against the far fence. 
It was especially impressive because not a lot of people go to minor league playoff games.  People don’t know about them.  School has started, and so has football season.  Even teams that sell out the regular season games have trouble getting buns in the seats in the postseason. 
I have never seen as many people in this ballpark as there were Friday night.  I don’t think it was a sellout, but it was close.

Emmanuel Burriss homers

September 5, 2014 (Syracuse, NY) - Shortstop Emmanuel Burriss hits a home run off Pawtucket Red Sock Henry Owen.

Burriss had a terrific game yesterday, going 4 for 5 with a double and a home run.  It wasn’t enough, though.  The Chiefs lost, 6-7.  Pawtucket won the series in straight sets, and advanced to the finals.

Corey Brown homers

September 5, 2014 - Pawtucket Red Sox center fielder Corey Brown hits a home during the sixth inning of the Pawtucket-Syracuse playoff game.

Brown was with the Syracuse Chiefs for several years, including last year.
