Quinn finishes record Class A season at Williamsport

He had .256 as a lefty after struggling early and hit .347 as a right-hander.

Quinn was a home crowd favorite due to his speed, Turner wrote, and the home crowd gave Quinn a huge ovation when he finally hit his first home run after a sterling All-Star Game appearance, during which he was 2 for 2 with a double and inside-the-park home run.

"He's not just slapping the ball," Tracy said. "He's driven the ball off the wall the other way. He's pulled a home run. He's hitting triples to both fields."

Quinn told Turner he was disappointed to "only" steal 30 bases this summer.

"My goal was forty,” Quinn said. “I think when I get into the instructional league” (in Florida this fall) “I want to learn how to steal third more. I also want to read lefty (pickoff) moves better."

Quinn was one of nine teenagers on the Crosscutters roster.

Quinn also garnered praise in Philly.com, where the website had a rundown of the Phillies’ minor league system in 2012.
