James Island Alum McGuiness Named MVP Of AFL Baseball League

James Island native Chris McGuiness was named the MVP of the Arizona Fall League on Saturday. The Citadel alum, who spent last baseball season in Double-A Frisco as part of the Texas Rangers organization, spent the 25 game AFL season as a member of the Surprise Saguaros. 

McGuiness led the AFL in RBI with 27 in 25 games and his 4 homeruns were good enough to tie him for 2nd in the league. He was also an all-star in the AFL and won one player of the week award in addition to being named a Rising Star. 

He was a 13th round pick of the Boston Red Sox in the 2009 MLB Draft. He was traded to the Rangers as part of a deal for Jarrod Saltalamacchia.
