The 2013 Regular Season is in the books and what an amazing season it was for 3rd year pro Cory Buchanan.

After starting the season on the bench as a utility player, he moved into the starting lineup at 1B a few weeks into the season and never looked back.

Cory took Major League Baseball by storm in 2013, cementing himself as not only a future star, but an absolute superstar in only his 1st full season in the big leagues.

Cory Buchanan won NL Batting Title, NL MVP, NL Silver Slugger, The Hank Aaron Award, and was only 2 HR's short of winning the NL Triple Crown!

The NY Mets (92-70) won the NL East by 1 game in the last game of the season thanks to Cory's go ahead HR in the 8th inning, and begin the playoffs against the talented Cinncinati Red's. Is it possible that Cory can cap off his amazing season with a World Series Championship?

AVG .337 (#1 in the NL)
HR's 43 (#2 in the NL)
RBI 119 (#1 in the NL)
SLG % .653 (#1 in the NL)
Hits 170
Runs 94
Walks 47

Some Highlights from my best games of the season.

5 HR's in a 4 game series vs the Cubs, 3 in the first game

2 HR Game vs the Colorado Rockies

It has been awhile since I updated this thread.

Late in the 2nd season of his career, Cory was traded from the SF Giants Organization to the NY Mets Organization.

The Emergence of 1B Prospect Brandon Belt hurt his chances and the Giants needed to beef up the roster in other positions.

Cory Finished the 2nd season with the AAA Buffalo Bisons, and had tremendous Success with the Bisons.

Finally with about with about a month left in the season was called up the Bigs as a utility\bench player for the NY Mets.

After 1 1/2 seasons of grinding it out in the Minor Leagues, 1B Prospect Cory Buchanan has gotten the call up the to the big leagues and is now a member of the New York Mets.

The SF Giants Draft Pick was traded early in the 2012 season to the New York Mets after Brandon Belt stole the spotlight as the future 1B star in the Giants Organization.

Cory was devastated that the team he grew up as a fan of had given up on him, but he understands baseball is a business and is happy to pursue his dreams of his MLB Career with the New York Mets Organization.

Cory had a spectacular start to he 2012 season leading the AAA International League in Batting Average, and top 5 in both 2B, 3B, HR and RBI.

He felt earned his place on the 40 man roster for the Mets. On July 24th 2012 his lifelong dream became a reality.

The Future is bright for this young prospect as he has earned his place as a utility player for now, but is looking to make the most of his opportunities to try and make the starting roster.

Cory Buchanan is a mild mannered baseball player from Salinas California, he has loved baseball since the moment he could stand on his own 2 feet, and was practically born with a baseball glove and bat in his hands.

This is his story.

Cory had always been good at baseball from a young age, his parents could not get him to stop practicing his swing no matter what the weather or time of year it was, baseball was his life and nothing was going to stop him from chasing his dream.

After having a young career that had him make 2 Little League World Series Appearances, 1 AAU National Championship, and being the best hitter in his region's history in High School, it was time for Cory to declare for the MLB Draft right out of High School.

Cory Grew up in the Bay Area, and has been a SF Giants fan since he was 7 years old, as if he needed any more motivation to chase his dream, the SF Giants World Series Championship run could not have come at a better time for Cory. After finishing his senior year of High School, he was now eligible to be an MLB Prospect. As luck would have it, the Giants are looking to build for the future and they love getting local kids into their farm system. With an aging depth chart at 1B, they decided to take a chance on the kid from Salinas, and give him a contract worth $30,000 with the AA Richmond Flying Squirrels.

Cory could not be happier, as his professional baseball career had officially begun, and he was ready for the challenge.

After a few up and down games to start the season, and quite a few poor at bats in his early career, it was time for him to do what he had done his whole life, practice more than anybody else in order to be the best.

Cory dedicated himself like he has his whole life to getting better, and many hours spent doing drills with the coaches to refine his swing and raw skills, he got his chance to shine against the Akron Aeros.

Cory led his team to victory going 5-6 with 2 HR's, 2 Doubles, 1 Single and 3 RBI, and won what are sure to be the first of many player of the game awards.
