MadFriars' Players of the Month: August

Andy Parrino has found his batting stroke in the PCL and Nate Freiman puts the finishing touches on another 20+ home run and 100+ RBI season in San Antonio. "Tank Top Tommy" continues to punish the Cal League, a pair of star shortstops in the MWL and NWL and another good young catcher in the AZL.
