Hitter of the Day

Our hitter of the day is Waynesboro’s Wes Clarke, from South Carolina, who is the only hitter with more than one extra-base hit. Wes went 2-4 last night, with 3 runs scored, 2 doubles, a walk, and 2 RBIs. Wes is now hitting .397, and has hit double figures in runs, RBIs, walks… and doubles. He’ll probably have 10 hit-by-pitches in a few weeks, too.
