Bookmark and Share

SIOUX FALLS – One of the greatest hitters in team history will have permanent recognition come Monday.

The Sioux Falls Canaries announced on Wednesday that former outfielder and designated hitter Beau Torbert will be inducted into the Sioux Falls Pro Baseball Hall of Fame in a pregame ceremony on Monday, July 8. Torbert’s number 7 jersey will also be retired with a permanent display on the outfield wall of Sioux Falls Stadium.

The ceremony will take place just prior to the first pitch of the Canaries game against the Lincoln Saltdogs, scheduled for 7:05 p.m. During the game fans can interact with the Canaries on Twitter and have a chance to meet Torbert during the game.

Torbert played three seasons in Sioux Falls from 2008-2010, and he became the most decorated hitter in franchise history. He was a two-time American Association Player of the Year in 2008 and 2010, and he earned independent baseball’s highest prize in 2010, Baseball America’s Independent Player of the Year.

Torbert owns numerous team records, including a .358 career batting average in Sioux Falls. In 2010, Torbert posted one of the best offensive outputs in the history of the league. He won the batting title with a .394 batting average, a team record and a league record at the time. He finished second in the league with 24 home runs, and his 100 RBI was tops in the league and a new team record. Torbert amassed 155 hits for the season, breaking the previous league record. He collected 51 multi-hit games during the year, including seven four-hit games. Torbert also established a team record for doubles in a season (38) and a league record for total bases in one season (269).
