I had to write this one in Carolina Blue !
On behalf of "Lets Talk Baseball" , The World Yacht Clippers Baseball Club, Our family and I'm sure all the folks in the Section One area, Congratulations go out to COLIN MORAN, named "NCAA NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE WEEK". Colin is from Rye, NY and played his high school baseball at Iona Prep and his summer ball with the Clippers. He is now a standout freshman starting at 3B for the University of North Carolina Tar Heels.
This past week in 5 games, Colin hit 4 homeruns and had 13 Rbi's. For the week Moran hit .529 (9-17) with eight runs, 25 total bases and slugged a remarkable 1.471. Moran also drew five walks, including two intentional free passes, and reached base at a .636 clip. To rub it in, he hit a homerun vs High Point on Wednesday in front of at least 8 former Section 1 players and over the weekend vs Duke and a few more locals he hit 2 more, the last one coming off a former Our Lady of Lourdes Pitcher. Great stuff isn't it?
Congratulations to Colin, great young man, great baseball family and he's got a great future ahead of him. Here is the link to the story:
