The 2016 Senior Ballhawk of the Year, Devin Trone.The ballhawking community has a growing crop of talented ballhawks who are over 50 years of age, and this year for the first time a Senior Ballhawk of the Year was chosen through a site-wide vote. Los Angeles ballhawk Devin Trone was the winner, edging out Baltimore's Doug Hakey in a close vote. Trone, who is known for rarely going after toss-ups, snagged 293 balls this year over the course of 106 games, averaging 2.76 balls per game. His season-high was a 9-ball outing on April 17 at Dodger Stadium in which eight of the nine balls were snagged off the bat. For his career, Trone has now snagged a staggering 1,738 balls. Trone was followed in the voting by Hakey, Rocco Sinisi and Greg Jeranek from Cincinnati, Leigh Barratt from San Diego, and Dave Edlund from San Francisco.
