Continuing on our way to the #1 hitter in the league in 2014, our #14 hitter is Winchester’s Alex Mata, a redshirt sophomore at St. Leo College.
Alex hit 335/397/453 in 161 at-bats for the Royals, along with 22 runs, 54 hits, 8 doubles, 1 triple, 3 home runs, 22 RBIs, 4 stolen bases, and a 13/36 BB/K ratio. He finished tied for 10th place in batting average.
The middle infielder also had a very strong redshirt freshman campaign at St. Leo in the spring of 2014. In 175 at-bats, he hit 314/324/400, with 10 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run, and a 4/26 BB/K ratio.
It’s clear that this kid can hit- watch for a breakout year this coming spring!
