VIPERS MVP SET TO RETURN IN NCAL 

 

Calgary Vipers MVP Carlos Duncan has signed a new contract for the upcoming campaign.

 

Duncan had a career year for Calgary in 2005. His .319 batting average was the second highest in his eleven year pro career, only one point less than the .320 he hit for Rio Grande in 2001. Duncan also led the Vipers with 20 home runs and also was first in hits with 121. Duncan set a new Northern League record with 59 stolen bases, eclipsing the old mark of 55. He was caught stealing only seven times during the entire season.

 

“Getting our best player back is the highlight of the off-season”, said Vipers Field Manager Mike Busch. “Carlos was one of the best two or three players in the entire league in 2005. He tells me he has spent the off-season working on the speed aspect of his game which could be a pretty scary thought for opposing catchers.”

 

“Carlos Duncan is not only a great player but a tremendous ambassador for the Vipers in the community”, said team President Peter Young. “Last summer he spent time with Spanish speaking students in area schools and he’s usually the last player around the park signing autographs following a game. Add in what he brings to us on the field and I believe we have our best signing for 2006. With the retirement of Juan Thomas I think that Carlos will definitely provide the leadership for our team”.

 

Duncan is one of four veteran players scheduled to come to the Vipers camp which begins on Thursday, May 4. Pitchers Klae Calvert and Javier Ortiz along with shortstop Digz Edwards will join Duncan.

 

Duncan was one of six Vipers players selected to the Northern League’s mid-season North Division All-Star team last season. He was also named the Northern League’s all-star third baseman in 2005 and chosen as second-team third baseman in all of Independent Baseball.
