Veteran DH returns for 13th season
The London Majors are pleased to announce the signing of Cleveland Brownlee.
Brownlee returns for his 13th season since joining the team in 2010 from Atlanta, Georgia. Cleveland put up career numbers last season and was part of the Majors’ 2nd straight championship. Atop of the league statistics, Cleveland could be found first or tied for first in 2 or the 3 major categories (Home Runs - tied for first with Majors’ Robert Mullen for 15 and lead RBIs with 52) and both were also career highs. Along with the home runs and RBIs, he set career highs in walks and at-bats. Cleveland not only has his eyes set on another championship but also set on some milestone numbers for his career.
After many speculations that last season was going to be the last, the veteran was asked about his chase for a third straight championship “I want to leave a legacy now, not when I’m gone. I want to thank Roop and everyone involved for giving me the opportunity to play for my family, the City of London and all the kids from the inner city that people told they couldn’t make a difference.”
In his 13th season coaching Brownlee, Roop Chanderdat was asked about what it means to him and the organization “It's truly an honour to coach Cleveland and have him on our team. Even at the later stages of his career, he continues to work at his craft to get better and help us win games. He is great with the younger players and one of my core players in the clubhouse that helps maintain the culture we have created here since my early years.”
