#13 Hitter: Colton Schultz, Strasburg

Colton Schultz UAB 2018

Two out of three seasons isn’t bad; like 2016, this Valley League season saw a UAB hitter perform very well for the Strasburg Express.

Like Carter Pharis before him (4th best hitter in ’16), this year it’s rising junior Colton Schultz, the 6-foot, 200-pound outfielder.

In the league, Colton finished 8th in on-base percentage, 8th in RBIs, 9th in runs scored, and was named 2nd Team All-Valley at designated hitter. He was named the hitter of the day on July 2nd, when he went 4-5, with 3 runs, 2 home runs, and 5 RBIs. He had 3 hits in a game 4 times, and 4 hits once. Here are his stats for the season:

VBL G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS Avg OBP SLG
2018 37 125 30 44 7 1 3 30 16 24 6 0 0.352 0.447 0.496

Here are his stats for UAB:

UAB G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS Avg OBP SLG
2017 41 109 17 32 9 0 1 16 12 26 5 1 0.294 0.403 0.404
2018 52 191 29 50 7 1 1 16 16 28 2 0 0.262 0.345 0.325

Watch for a jump in those rate stats next spring in Colton’s junior year! Congratulations on your excellent summer!
