Brian Myrow had a spectacular 2012 season that ended with a deserved honor for the Grand Prairie AirHogs veteran, who was named as the first baseman on the American Association’s postseason All-Star team.
The lefty-swinging Texan did most of his talking in 2012 with his bat, hitting .364 with 12 home runs and 63 RBIs. The batting average was good for second in the American Association. Myrow was also tied for third with 31 doubles, second with 75 walks and led the league with 10 intentional walks, tying an American Association record.
He also hit for the cycle in Laredo on July 10, 2012 – the first AirHog to do so in the five years of the team’s existence as well as the first time Myrow had done it in his career.
The native of Saginaw, Texas, who played baseball at Burleson High School in the metroplex, also led the league in on-base percentage (.490) and slugging percentage (.608).
Myrow spent parts of three seasons in the Major Leagues, with the Dodgers in 2005 and the Padres in 2007 and 2008. He was with the Winnipeg Goldeyes in 2011 before being acquired by the AirHogs in an offseason trade.
