(October 6, 2022, New York) – The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball on Thursday named outfielder Courtney Hawkins of the Lexington Legends as the league’s Player of the Year in voting conducted by the league’s managers, coaches and front office staffs.

Hawkins had one of the most productive offensive seasons in ALPB history. The leftfielder tied the league mark with 48 home runs, matching the total set by Newark’s Ozzie Canseco in 2000. Hawkins’ 125 RBI were the second-most ever recorded by an Atlantic League player. He led the league in slugging percentage (.655), runs (110), extra base hits (72) and total bases (310) while posting the league’s top OPS at 1.054.

A member of the Atlantic League’s Postseason All-Star team and the Ballpark Digest Mid-Season All-Star team, Hawkins hit .298 in 2022. In his four seasons in the ALPB, Hawkins has hit at a .305 clip and knocked 100 homers while driving in 278 runs in 221 games.
