WINNIPEG - The American Association has awarded the Winnipeg Goldeyes with the league's Organization of the Year Award for the second consecutive season.

The Goldeyes went 55-45 during the regular season and 6-0 in the playoffs to win the organization's first American Association title in just the second season in the league. Off the field, Winnipeg drew a league-high 285,263 fans during 50 home games for an average attendance of 5,705.

"It's an honour to be selected for this award by our American Association peers," Goldeyes GM Andrew Collier said. "It is a tribute to the hard work done by our staff on a yearly basis and the support we receive from our fans."

The award is selected based on voting by American Association field managers and media.

This marks the seventh time in the past 10 years that the Goldeyes have won the organization of the year award for the league in which they play.
