Former Catfish player named American Association Player of the Month

Brandon Carter, 2B for the Grand Prairie Airhogs of the American Association (independent), was named the league's Player of the Month for July.

In 26 games, Carter hit an even .400 at the plate with five home runs, 23 RBI and 34 hits. In addition, he scored 22 runs, collected 11 doubles, slugged .729 and had an on-base percentage of .429. On the season, the Sacramento, CA native is batting .302 with seven home runs, 44 RBI and 20 doubles (tied for fourth best in the American Association).

After playing with the Columbus Catfish during the end of 2004, all of 2005, and the beginning of 2006, Carter was released by the Dodgers (the Catfish parent club at the time) after battling injuries.

He signed on with Reno of the Golden League late in the season. Last year, he signed with Anderson of the South Coast League shortly after the season began.

During the off-season, he was traded to Wichita of the American Association before the SCL ceased operations. He was traded to Grand Prairie, and expansion team. The Airhogs have the best record in the league since he joined the team.
