Patterson Honored by Baseball America
Patterson began his professional career on a tear as he hit .415 (17-41) over his first ten games of the season. The outfielder was as consistent as a player could be in 2005. With the bases empty he hit .313 with seven home runs, while with runners on base he hit .364 with six home runs. With runners in scoring position, Patterson hit .375 with three home runs and fifty-one RBI.
"I am a hard-nose player" Patterson told InsideTheDome. "I like to get dirty and am one of those players that runs out every ball, and likes to play in the dirt."
When asked which player in the major leagues Patterson would compare himself with he said Kevin Millar.
"I think I am similar with Kevin Millar. A lot of scouts have compared me to him. I believe because he doesn't do anything really flashy, but plays hard and in the end gets the job done."
