James Mungro Memorial Award

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Alex Wilson, the forgotten man

  If this was four years ago, Alex Wilson wouldn’t stand a chance of surviving in JMMA chase. For one, he wasn’t a member of the Tigers. But even if he was, he’d was too good to be considered. In 2011, Wilson, now 28, was ranked the No. 11 prospect in the Red Sox system by […]

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Kyle Ryan, who is playing for keeps

Kyle Ryan entered the chase for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) as an underdog, but the more he reveals himself, the more his chances keep increasing. Ryan isn’t an ideal candidate. He’s a tall skinny pitcher in a world lousy with them. His background is bland: 12th-round pick of the Tigers, worked […]

Know your James Mungro Memorial Award nominee: Angel Nesbitt (plus the competition’s first eliminiation)

This year’s version of the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) chase is less than a week old, but it already has a controversy.

Over the next month we fell in love with this man as he ripped the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) away from the other competitors. He then went on an unprecedented […]

A JMMA update: What the landscape is for our former winners headed into spring training

We’ve reached a turning point. Almost every baseball team ever held their Fan Fest/Winter Caravan/rally event/excuse to sell season tickets this weekend. Spring training is less than a month away. Another hunt for the James Mungro Memorial Award presented by (sponsor pending) will begin soon. But before that happens we most honor the past. The baseball […]

Recapping George Johnson’s year as the James Mungro Memorial Award champion

Winter is here, February is coming and pitchers and catchers report in just 39 days. The next chapter of the James Mungro Memorial award sponsored by (sponsor pending) is around the corner. I knew you’ve already done a beer bong and taken your pants off at the news, but we’ve still got more than month. […]
