  1. Nice to see HJL finding ways to impact the game even if he's not getting hits.

    Also, how about Jake Hager? Good approach at the plate, makes contact, and is beginning to really go on a big time hot streak. He was the one player who stood out when I went to a few Princeton games last season, he just is a very smooth baseball player with a very nice swing.

  2. Mahtook is the real deal!! Should be moving up quickly!
