The Lakewood BlueClaws built a reputation for being dancing machines well before they locked down a second consecutive South Atlantic League title. Last season, the 'Claws started a tradition of passing the time during rain delays by performing dance routines. Early this season, they kept it going.
Trevor May, a pitching prospect who turns 21-years-old this week, managed to keep his love of the dance a secret until Lakewood defeated the Greenville Drive (Boston affiliate) in the SAL finals for the second straight year. During the BlueClaws' celebration following the game 4 victory that gave May his third league championship in three seasons in the minors (May won the Gulf Coast League championship with the Phillies in 2008 and was a member of last season's BlueClaws team), May joined the ranks of Lakewood's rhythmic expression elite.

Trevor May was a 4th round draft pick by the Phillies in 2008 and was recently ranked as the 4th best prospect in the Phillies organization in a poll of minor league experts done by The Reading Eagle. In 11 regular season starts for Lakewood this year, May went 7-3 with a 2.91 ERA and 92 strike outs in 65 innings pitched. In the 2010 post season, May started 2 games, and posted a 1-1 record with a 0.77 ERA while striking out 21 batters in 11 2/3 innings.
