Starting in Spring 2016, we will be offering a scholarship program to help kids participate
in Piranhas Baseball, that otherwise would not be able to afford it. 100% of proceeds
will go towards the kids of Piranhas Baseball.
Piranhas (baseball), From Wikipedia
"Piranhas" was a nickname applied to a group of hitters for the Minnesota Twins baseball
team. Specifically, the term applied to shortstop Jason Bartlett, third baseman Nick
Punto, outfielder Jason Tyner, and second baseman Luis Castillo. Midway through
the 2006 season, the Twins opted for a lineup that included Tyner batting eighth,
Bartlett ninth, Castillo first, and Punto second. Manager Ron Gardenhire said players
were like four leadoff hitters: all were fast and hit for average but not power.
During the 2006 season, all four hit between .290 (Punto) and .312 (Tyner), but hit
a combined six home runs. The term "piranhas" was coined during the 2006 season
by Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillén for their aggressive style of play.
