Canseco Sets RBIs Record
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) _ Newark Bears designated hitter Ozzie Canseco set the Atlantic League single-season RBIs record with 104 Tuesday when he doubled home a run in the seventh inning of a 7-4 win over the Somerset Patriots.
Canseco, who is the identical twin brother of New York Yankees slugger Jose Canseco, also set the league’s single season home run record earlier this year. He has 37 homers, four more than the previous mark.
Juan Thomas of the Atlantic City Surf was the previous single season RBIs record-holder with 103 in 1998. Thomas also set the previous home-run record that year.
