Hitter of the Day

Dom Dalessandro Charlottesville 2018

Our HOD is Charlottesville’s Dominic D’Alessandro, from George Washington, winning his second HOD award this summer! Dominic went 3-6 against the ‘Stock, with 2 runs, 4 RBIs, and 2 home runs. (The second multi-homer day in a row in the league.) Dominic is now hitting 336/392/573 on the season with 44 RBIs, a total that puts him very close to the top 11 in the league since 2004. In his last two games, Dominic has 4 runs, 6 hits, 3 home runs, and 9 RBIs. I think it’s safe to say he’s pretty hot right now.
