RUSTON, La. - Former Louisiana Tech infielder Amos Ramon was named the American Association's playoff Most Valuable Player after his outstanding performance for the Winnipeg Goldeyes in the championship series last week.
In the Goldeyes' playoff run, Ramon recorded two homeruns, nine runs batted in with a .467 batting average over the course of six postseason games for the Canadian club on the way to winning the league title.
Ramon lettered two seasons for head baseball coach Wade Simoneaux and the Bulldogs in 2005-06 as an infielder, leading the team in assists (161) and stolen bases (8) for the 2006 season.
Ramon was acquired from the Lake County Fielders in 2011 before missing the entire regular season due to a torn ACL in his left knee. He returned in 2012 to hit .281 with four homeruns and 35 RBI in the regular season for Winnipeg.
