KEVIN FRANDSEN WINS 2006 STENSON AWARD


Kevin Frandsen

Kevin Frandsen (San Francisco) of the Scottsdale Scorpians beat out five other nominated AFL’ers to win the 2006 Dernell Stenson Sportsman of the Year Award. Dernell Stenson was a prospect with the Cincinnati Reds, who was shot to death while playing in the AFL for Scottsdale in 2003. Mark Teahen (Kansas City) won the first Stenson Award in 2004, made it to the big leagues in 2005, and starred for the Royals in 2006. Last year Andre Ethier (Oakland) won the award, before being traded to the LA Dodgers, where he earned an everyday major league job in 2006. Frandsen hopes the success of these two previous winners rubs off on him. The one thing all three winners share is a great determination to succeed. I was in Scottsdale when Kevin received this award November 15th.

CONGRATS TO KEVIN FRANDSEN!!! AND GOOD LUCK IN 2007 & BEYOND!!!
