St. Cloud, MN – The Northwoods League announced this morning the recipients of the 2021 Rawlings ‘Finest in the Field’ Award. The annual award recognizes the top fielders at each position. The winners are selected based on final fielding statistics compiled by the Northwoods League. Included in this year’s recipients was Rox third baseman, Jordan Barth from Augustana University.
In 2021 Barth played in 65 games during his third season with the Rox. He led all third basement in the Northwoods League with a .943 fielding percentage. During his Rox career, in addition to receiving the ‘Finest in the Field’ award, Barth was named a Northwoods Postseason All-Star following the 2019 and 2020 seasons and was selected to play in the Major League Dreams Showcase in 2019.
Barth becomes the first Rox player to be named a Rawlings ‘Finest in the Field’ Award winner since 2017 when second baseman Matthew Tarantino and outfielder Mason Mamarella received the award.
Rawlings has been rewarding the top defenders in the Northwoods League since 2002. The recipients receive a special Rawlings engraved trophy. Rawlings is the official equipment provider for the Northwoods League.
The Rox will return in 2022 for their eleventh season of Northwoods League baseball.
