Parnell Ruark and his potent bat would return in 1951 and again set this park on fire with 29 2B, and his 2nd straight season leading the league in HR with 32 bombs and a .329 batting average along with a league leading 140 RBI. The team also featured the 19 year old Claude Young who hit a terrific .382 with 24 2B and 15 HR. The Green Sox would take 2nd place with a 78-50 (.609) record as 40,000 came to the ballpark which actually led the league despite being 10k less than the previous season. Unfortunately for Dublin, waiting for them in the 1st round was none other than the Eastman Dodgers yet again…. And yet again, the Dodgers took down Dublin, this time 4 games to 2. At the end of the season, the Major Leagues finally began scouting this league and there were 2 affiliations to be given out to the 8 franchises. Dublin managed to secure one of them, as the Cincinnati Reds signed this franchise to its first ever PDC. Parnell Ruark however was traded to Tifton and there wasn't much in the way of hitting as William Mays (no not Willie Mays), hit .288 with 26 2B, 9 3B and 17 HR and was easily the best hitter in the lineup, with many players struggling near the "Mendoza Line". In the pitching area there was some good news… as Noel Oquendo went 20-10, 3.68 on the season to become the 2nd pitcher to win 20 games, and some not so good news as Raul Vilamea set the all time loss record for the Georgia State League with his 11-20, 4.05 record. Dublin played their final season as the "Green Sox" finishing at 55-71 (.437) in 7th place. Only 34,000 bothered to come see this team, which even scarier… led the league in attendance.
