Micah Johnson Garden Gnome Countdown
In honor of the 2012 Voyagers second baseman, ACE Hardware and the Voyagers will be giving away Micah Johnson garden gnomes to the first 750 fans on Thursday July 18 when Great Falls hosts Orem. From now until the day of the giveaway, we here at Voyagers Vision will give you daily updates on Johnson–who currently leads all of Minor League Baseball with 61 stolen bases for Low A Kannapolis. On the season, Johnson is batting .342 through 77 games for the Intimidators–which is the third highest mark in the South Atlantic League. He was named to the 2013 SAL All-Star game and was bestowed the honor of the game’s MVP, as he stole two bases and scored the winning run for the North Division in the 2-1 victory. Johnson is also first in the league with 76 runs scored, 104 hits and 11 triples. The 2012 White Sox ninth round draft pick out of Indiana also ranks third in the league with an OBP of .422. In his one year with Great Falls, Johnson hit .273 with four homers and 25 RBI. He also stole 19 bases and legged out five triples in 69 games. Be sure to check back every day for Micah Johnson updates, and who knows, you might even get a sneak peak of Garden Gnome Micah Johnson—-if you’re lucky!
Tonight, Johnson and Kannapolis will host Augusta at 5:05.
