Trail, British Columbia native Jason Bay got 25 of 32 first-place votes and 146 points Monday from the Baseball Writers' Association of America to win the National League Rookie of the Year award. He's the first Canadian to win Rookie of the Year honours.
I hadn't heard of Trail, so I hit the city's official site. They refer to themselves as the Home of Champions. Here's a list of the names on the Home of Champions Monument in Trail's downtown. The only names I recognize are in the hockey category and currently the only name listed under baseball is Andy Bilesky. Bilesky is a successful Little League manager who was chosen as Trail's Citizen of the Year in 1986.
Move over Bilesky, Trail's got a new champion.
