Submitted By Ryan Ryette on Friday, October 12, 2018
Jamie Romak sure knows how to celebrate an award.On the same day he earned yet another Canadian Baseball Network honour, he hit a grand slam that left a park in Korea.

The 33-year-old London slugger was voted CBN’s top offensive player in a foreign/independent league for the second straight year.

As of this week, the London Badgers alumnus is hitting .315 with 43 home runs, 106 RBIs and 102 runs scored in 139 games for the Korean Baseball Organization’s SK Wyverns. His 43 homers are second in the league and he has become the first Canadian with back-to-back 40 home run seasons in professional baseball.

Romak spent 13 years in the affiliated minor league ranks, plus Major League Baseball stints with the Dodgers in 2014 and the Diamondbacks the following season.

Blue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero earned the Randall Echlin Award as the Canadian offensive minor league player of the year while his double-A New Hampshire teammate Jordan Romano was named minor league pitcher of the year.

Lefthander Andrew Albers was voted top pitcher in a foreign/independent league with a 9-2 record in 19 games with Orix Buffaloes in Japan.
