GCL Yankees Win League Title

Dante Bichette, Jr. was a playoff hero in his first professional season, leading the Yankees to the Gulf Coast League title over the Marlins, two games to one. It was the team's first league title since 2007.

The son of the former All-Star of the same name capped off a fantastic debut year with a .429 batting average in the four-game playoffs, including a game-tying homer in the 3-1 clincher last night.

The club's manager, Carlos Mendoza, called Bichette his MVP. Since debuting in June, the 18-year-old has hit .342/.446/.505 in 240 PA.

It'll be interesting to see where Bichette begins 2012: full-season Charleston or short season Staten Island.
