Just a few months ago Thomasville's Wil Myers was playing for the Durham Bulls in minor league baseball. On Monday, the Wesleyan Christian star received 23 of 30 first-place votes from the Baseball Writers' Association of America to win the American League Rookie of the Year award. He batted .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs in just 88 games for the Tampa Bay Rays.
