Scott Johnson added another award to his resume in summer 2015 - best trainer in the International League, according to MiLB.com.

For the longtime Charlotte Knights trainer it was his third such award in 13 seasons with the club, MiLB.com wrote.

"I'm honored to receive this award," Johnson said, according to the site. "I would like to thank the other trainers in the International League for voting for me this season. It truly means a lot knowing that this award has come from my peers."
