The Kansas City T-Bones and manager Tim Doherty have announced that 2008 Northern League Playoff MOP Jim Fasano has been acquired from the El Paso Diablos for a player to be named.
Fasano’s best season as a T-Bone came during Kansas City’s 2008 championship campaign when he hit .292/.387/.534 while pacing the league in home runs (20) and RBI (84) during the regular season. He was an integral part of the team’s postseason success, earning Playoff MOP honors after batting .571 with three home runs in the four-game championship series.
Fasano was traded from Fargo to El Paso with pitcher Alex Kaminsky and two players to be named for designated hitter Kyle Nichols. The Diablos then sent Fasano to Kansas City. To make room on the roster, veteran outfielder Prentice Redman was released by the T-Bones.
Fasano will be in the lineup on Saturday night as Kansas City takes on the Diablos at 7:05. It is Military Appreciation Night and fans will have the opportunity to purchase game-used T-Bones military jerseys during the game in a silent auction. Also, stick around after the game for Post-Game Fireworks presented by Verizon. Call 913-328-5618 or visit www.tbonesbaseball.com to secure your seats now!
