Give Dans Tickets as Stocking Stuffers
Running to a title
- BY CHAD DARE firstname.lastname@example.org
It's no secret that Danville manager Eric Coleman believes in speed. From his very first day with the Dans back in 2014 until today, his teams have been known for being very aggressive on the base paths.
And while this year's team did set a new Prospect League record with 164 stolen bases, they also did something else — Danville won the Prospect League's West Division title.
"My philosophy has always been that speed doesn't go into slumps,'' Coleman said. "And while it is nice to set the record again, I can tell you that it's even better the way this group of guys battled and grinded down the stretch to get this division title.
The Dans were able to claim the regular-season title with a 6-5 win over the Terre Haute Rex on Thursday night, followed up with a 9-6 triumph on Friday night at Danville Stadium.
