The senior from Glen Allen, Virginia, is having his best season in college baseball, hitting .278/.442/.611 in 126 at-bats, with 39 runs scored, seven doubles, a triple, 11 home runs, 37 RBIs, and a stupendous 38/20 BB/K ratio. He leads his team in on-base percentage, runs, home runs, and walks. And. he has a sweet beard, too.
You might say Mr. Battle is used to winning, as he played for Charlottesville in the club’s 2017 32-10 regular season and subsequent title. In 33 games and 123 at-bats that summer, Battle hit .244/.298/.309, with 23 runs scored, five doubles, one home run, and 20 RBIs. He also went 7-19 in Charlottesville’s playoff run, with two doubles, three RBIs, and four walks.
With his excellent performance, Battle is starting to get some mention as a possible draftee this summer- and ATVL and the Valley League will be watching!
