Erik Ostberg #2 in Batting Average for NCAA Division 1
2015 Silver Knight Erik Ostberg is off to a tremendous start for the Hartford Hawks in 2017. The junior catcher is batting an unworldly .537 (good for 2nd in the country) with 22 hits in 10 games. He has collected a hit in each of the teams games so far this season.
In the summer of 2015, Ostberg finished 3rd in the Futures Collegiate Baseball League of New England with a .349 batting average.

Merrimack's Mickey Gasper Keeps Crushing Baseballs
There are no doubts about it, Mickey Gasper is excelling at the plate. His string of success hasn't just been limited to his play for the Silver Knights or at Bryant University.
Over the past 365 days, Gasper is 114-285 when he gets in the batters box. That is an astounding .400 batting average which includes the latter part of the 2016 college season, 2016 Silver Knights season and the first four weeks of the 2017 college baseball season.
Look for his success to continue and for his name to be called come this years MLB Draft.
