Benton's Cliff Lee wins Cy Young award

That's right. Cliff Lee, a local boy, won the American League Cy Young Award today.

Yes, we're proud of Lee here in Benton, Ark. He played for the Benton Panthers (we've got a great baseball program here) and the Arkansas Razorbacks. He pitches for the Cleveland Indians now and is coming off a 22-3 season and a 2.54 ERA last season, and that was coming back to Major League Baseball after a season in the minor leagues.

Lee still calls Benton home, thus proving yet again that he's a quality individual.
