The 29-game win streak put together by the Salt Lake Trappers in 1987 has been chosen as the story of the decade by "Baseball News," the official publication of the National Association of Professional Baseball Leagues - the minor-league governing body.

The Trapper story beat out the three no-hitters thrown by Tom Drees in 1989 for Vancouver (Pacific Coast League) and the back-to-back million-fan seasons by the 1988 and '89 Buffalo Bisons of the American Associaion, the only NAPBL team to ever do that. Those stories were Nos. 2 and 3 out of 15 chosen.In its winter issue, "Baseball News" said the Trapper Streak "had the attention of the nation in 1987" and that "all of the major news networks covered this continually break story."
