It's been a tremendous year for the Baltimore Orioles.
The first half of the MLB season ended with the club four games up on the Toronto Blue Jays in the volatile American League East, several players (Nelson Cruz, Adam Jones, Darren O'Day) in the midst of career years, others in the midst of breakout campaigns (Wei-Yin Chen, Zach Britton) and the team as a whole able to overcome a massive injury (Matt Wieters) in the heart of its lineup.
Down on the farm, the year has been equally kind.
The Delmarva Shorebirds and the Bowie Baysox are in the playoff hunt, while players such as Christian Walker, Mike Yastrzemski and Chance Sisco are having breakout campaigns, and several others have already contributed greatly to the big league club's success.
As it's the time of year for recognition, it seems unfair to leave out the minor leaguers, some of whom have been toiling away in the organization for close to 10 years.
Let's take a quick look at which stars have shined the brightest.
