Yonder Alonso Named Pert Plus MiLB Hitting Star

DANBURY, Conn. (Sep. 7, 2011) - Pert Plus, the 2-in-1 shampoo and conditioner that gets men "in, out and done," announced today the winners of the 2011 PERT Plus MiLB Stars. Fans worldwide voted online for the Triple-A position player and pitcher whom they believe have the brightest futures. After nearly two months of voting on MiLB.com, fans have selected Yonder Alonso and Julio Teheran as this year's winners.

Yonder Alonso, left fielder for the Louisville Bats, was dubbed the winning hitter. Alonso was born in Havana, Cuba, and attended the University of Miami, where he played three seasons for the Hurricanes. The 24-year old left fielder hit .296 in 91 games for the Bats before the Cincinnati Reds brought him up to the Majors at the end of July.

"It is an honor for myself and my teammates," said Alonso. "They have made it possible for me to do well. I feel grateful for the fans noticing my contributions to the team day in and day out. I thank them for voting for me."

"Yonder is a professional hitter," said Rick Sweet, manager for the Louisville Bats. "He will hit in the major leagues just like he did at the minor league level. He hits for power, average and drives in runs. He is one of the best hitters that I've ever had."
