Chad Tracy named Atlantic League Player of the Week for August 4-10
Revolution first baseman Chad Tracy has been named Atlantic League Player of the Week for the second time this season. He batted a robust .462 (12-26) in seven games between August 4 and 10, with two home runs, a double, five RBI and three runs scored. Tracy also won the award June 16-22, and it’s the third time a Rev has won Player of the Week this season; LHP Alain Quijano was honored for June 30-July 6.
Tracy scored the game-winning run in back to back games at home against the Long Island Ducks August 9 and 10; on the 9th he tagged up from third and scored on Ofilio Castro’s sac fly to right in a 2-1 walkoff win, and down 4-3 in the 7th the following day, he blasted a two-run homer to left to put York in the lead 5-4, and they would win by that score. With that home run, his team-leading 14th of the season, Tracy also reached 70 RBI which gave him the Atlantic League lead at the time.
Tracy is currently on pace for 98 RBI this season. He is chasing what could be the third 100-RBI season in Revolution history; outfielder Jason Aspito drove in 105 in 2008, which was a club record until first baseman Chris Nowak ended 2012 with 107 RBI.
