With 17 votes, Andrew "Sully" Sullivan (Eastern Athletics) was the winner of the Jamie McIntyre Player of the Year for 2016-17 at Saturday's Baseball Tasmania Presentation Night. Sully had earlier won the batting champion title with an average of 0.630 but he was still shocked when he was announced as this season's winner. Sully won from Jimmy Clout (13 votes), Tim Holland (13) Fiona Don (12). James Jubb (12) and Ryan Oakley (12). Congratulations to Sully on a great season. David (2/4/2017)
