Hitter of the Day

Our hitter of the day is once again Winchester’s Jimmy Goldsmith, from Radford. Also the hitter of the day on June 11th, Jimmy went 4-5 last night, with 2 runs,  home run, and 5 RBIs. Now, check this out: Jimmy has played in 5 games for the Royals so far. He’s hit in all 5 games, and is 14-21 overall, with a slash line of 667/720/1.048, along with 11 runs and 13 RBIs. I think this qualifies as a good start.
