"Teilon, a native of San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic, has challenged for the United League's triple crown as he has been the league leader in homeruns, runs batted in, and batting average at different stages through the 2007 season. Teilon currently leads all of United League Baseball in batting average (.364), runs batted in (92), doubles (30), and slugging percentage (.617). The former White Sox and Diamondbacks farm hand has not played since 2004 when he was a member of the North Shore Spirit, who at the time played in the now defunct Northeast League. Teilon's 2007 set new single season league records for RBIs, doubles, and slugging percentage. His offensive numbers in 2007 are all career highs for the 27 year old infielder."
Good for Nilson, he was a great guy and a solid player. According to 'sources,' Teilon had to leave the team before the '05 season because his status in this country was not exactly legal, per se - which is a shame, we could have used his bat in '05. I'm glad he's got his paperwork straightened out now
In other news, according to a commenter, Anton French has been released after 'making it known' that he was unhappy to be with the Spirit.... I guess he thought he was too good for us. I wonder if our massive, enthusiastic home crowds won him over? :P
