The Detroit Tigers hosted their annual Minor League Award Ceremony prior to their spring training game on March 17th to recognize accomplishments in their Player Development Department.
Among the awards handed out was the Dwight Lowry Player Development Person of the Year Award, which was presented to their Minor League Medical and Rehabilitation Coordinator, Corey Tremble, for the 2017 season.
The award is named in honor of former Detroit Tigers player and minor league manager, Dwight Lowry, who passed away unexpectedly from a heart attack while managing the club’s single A affiliate in Jamestown, NY, in 1997. Each year, the award is presented to a member of the Player Development Department whose accomplishments have contributed to the success of the Detroit Tigers Minor League System.
Tremble is currently in his 11th season with Detroit and is entering his 6th in his current role. Past winners include Detroit’s Head Athletic Trainer, Doug Teter, and Minor League Strength and Conditioning Coordinator, Steve Chase.
