Three members of the HU baseball team were recognized as some of the best in the Crossroads League as announced by the league office earlier today.
For the second straight year, Daniel Lichty and Ian McCutcheon earned First Team All-Conference praises.
Lichty, who has three league badges to his name, was named the All-Conference third baseman this season for his outstanding work on both sides of the ball.
At the plate, the Ontario native (London HS) posted a .337 batting average and a team-leading 67 hits which included pounding out 18 doubles, four triples and seven homeruns. His resume also includes driving in 46 runs and swiping 20 bags.
Defensively, Lichty was named to the Gold Glove Team for the second consecutive year. He committed ten errors at the hot spot for a fielding percentage of .927, racked up 86 assists and turned six double plays.
McCutcheon, a Huntington North High School graduate, was one of four outfielders on the top team.
It’s the third time he’s been honored by the CL. His .377 batting average is the fifth best among his league peers and tops among his teammates. He also led the Foresters in slugging percentage (.747) and on base percentage (.485).
Of his 61 hits, he cranked out a team-leading 14 dingers. He scored 61 times and logged 48 RBI.
Satchell Wilson was the shortstop pick for the Second Team.
He leads the league in stolen bases with 30 in as many attempts.
With his .329 batting average, the Anderson native (Lapel HS) hammered out 57 hits on the year, 14 for extra bases, knocked in 35 runs and scored 41 times.
Defensively, he turned 21 double plays, carried a .933 fielding percentage and logged 129 assists.
