Current, former and incoming Rice baseball players are participating in Summer Ball leagues around the country. Here’s the latest on those Owls.
First a quick note on rosters. I’ve tracked down all players that I could find with listed statistics, but I know there are others playing ball this summer. If you come across information on anyone else associated with Rice baseball playing summer ball, please send it my way. You can leave it in the comments or send it to me some other way. Thanks!
Everyone has seemingly gotten in on the fun at the plate this summer. Four different Owls enter mid-July with a batting average better than .290. That includes Austin Bulman, Nathan Becker and Cullen Hannigan, each of which earned All-Star recognition in their respective leagues for their tremendous performances to this point in the season.
Those four have done the bulk of the damage for the Rice bats. Hal Hughes picked up his first home run of the summer. He, Justin Long and William Burbank all notched their first extra base hits of the season over the past two weeks as well.
Micah Davis, Matthew Linskey and Dalton Wood each had outings since the last update with Davis settling into form. He struck out eight batters over 4.2 innings across two separate outings, upping his summer K count from two to double-digits in a short window. Linskey did allow his first earned run of the summer, but has maintained a microscopic 0.96 ERA.
