Anderson named MVP in Southern League All-Star Game
White Sox No. 1 prospect goes 2-for-3 with a double and triple on his 22nd birthday
Tim Anderson turned 22 years old on Tuesday and capped off his special day by winning the Southern League All-Star Game MVP award in his home state.
As the final score indicates, Anderson got plenty of offensive help. Cubs No. 13 prospect Dan Vogelbach launched a three-run home run to put the North ahead 3-0. His dinger -- which brought home Chattanooga teammates Adam Brett Walker and Max Kepler -- came off of Reds No. 1 prospect Robert Stephenson, who surrendered four runs (two earned) in the second inning.
Anderson's big night came amidst a hot streak as he's 8-for-13 over his past three games for Double-A Birmingham. The shortstop is currently hitting .313/.337/.414 with one home run, 28 RBIs and 23 stolen bases this season.
