Once again, the American Association’s best organization resides north of the border.

The independent baseball league announced Tuesday that the Winnipeg Goldeyes have been named the 2013 organization of the year. Voted on by the American Association’s 13 managers and members of the media, it marks the third straight season the Fish have earned the award.

"It’s an honour to once again be recognized by our brothers in the American Association for this award," Goldeyes general manager Andrew Collier said in a statement. "It’s a credit to the amount of time and effort our front office staff puts in throughout the year and the amazing support we receive from our great fans."

The recognition is becoming an annual rite of autumn for Collier and the Goldeyes. Dating back to the Northern League days, the local club has picked up the ‘top organization’ award eight times in the last 11 years, including all three years as a member of the American Association.

Winnipeg, coming off a 2012 championship season, led the American Association (and all of independent baseball) in attendance, averaging 5,880 fans per contest this past summer.
