By the Tri-City Herald October 12, 2011 

PASCO -- Fresh off a record-setting season, the Tri-City Dust Devils added yet another feather in their caps Tuesday when Derrel Ebert, their general manager and vice president, was named the Northwest League's Executive of the Year.

Not bad for someone who had never before experienced a winning season.

"This award is a compliment to all those involved with Dust Devils baseball," Ebert said in a statement. "Our front office works extremely hard throughout the year, and we get great support from our fans, sponsors, the Colorado Rockies and the City of Pasco."

Tri-City fans set the Dust Devils attendance record for the fifth consecutive year at 85,953, and also set the franchise's single-game mark at 3,811.

On the field, the Dust Devils (44-32) earned their third NWL East Division title in five seasons and tied a league mark with 10 shutouts.
