Congratulations to Tommy La Stella for his selection as the number 47 player in the top 100 countdown of the top college baseball players in the nation by the College Baseball Daily.
La Stella played in 64 games for the Chanticleers in 2010, leading the team in batting average (.378) and hits (93), with 14 doubles, 2 triples, 14 homeruns and 66 RBI. Out of all those stats, possibly most impressive for the Chanticleers cleanup hitter was the fact that he only struck out 15 times in 246 ABs.
La Stella is a junior infielder and Coastal expects another great season from him. He is the third Chanticleer selected in the top 100 this year. Scott Woodward and Daniel Bowman were named earlier. I have a pretty good feeling that we will have at least one more player on the list before it’s over.
