Around the Farm: August 30
Around the Farm takes a quick look at some of yesterday's performances by Indians prospects throughout the system. The positions listed below are where the player was playing in yesterday's game.
Jason Knapp-SP, Lake County: 3 1/3 IP, 7 H, 4 R (3 ER), 8 K, 2 BB.

K-Tribe names 2010 Award Winners
In a season that appears to have been saved by a late playoff run, it seems appropriate that the Carolina League saves leader would be named the Kinston Indians 2010 MVP. Kinston Indians closer Cory Burns was given the Pat Crawford MVP award this past Saturday.
Burns joined the K-Tribe on May 21, and since then, he's been nothing short of exceptional. Burns has gone 1-2 with 26 saves since...

It was the last regular season game for the K-Tribe this season, but hopefully not the last time the K-Tribe will return home.
