Rays pitcher Peter Fairbanks was the 2008 SLABA All-Star Game MVP for the St. Louis Tigers

Congrats to Peter Fairbanks and the Tampa Bay Rays for making it to the World Series.  Peter played for the Tigers and was the 2008 SLABA 14U All-Star Game MVP.

He is the first former Tiger to make it to the World Series!

Peter battled back from two Tommy John surgeries to earn his spot in the MLB.
