Wong, the brother of former University of Hawai’i All-American and current Cardinals star second baseman Kolten, was awarded as the game’s Most Valuable Player.

The Tampa Bay Rays 22-year-old infield prospect finished 3-4, ending his 2017 campaign in Durham hitting .270 with 6 home runs and 48 RBI.
