Ram 11U Summer Wrap

The Ram 11U Travel baseball team wrapped up their rain-hampered summer season. Although one third of their games were cancelled due to rain, the Rams finished with a 9-5 record. They also primed the pump for a bright Shelbyville baseball future.

“They are a great group of young men with a bright future ahead of them,” said Ram coach Tony Pullen.

As a team, the Rams hit over .300, had an on base percentage of over .460, and a slugging percentage of over .400. They scored over 100 runs in their 14 games (7.35 runs/game). They jacked seven home runs, stole 94 bases and were only caught stealing three times. Meanwhile, the Ram pitchers (9-5) never gave up a single home run.

Rece Pullen led the Rams with a .500 batting average. He also had a team-high 14 singles and the only triple. He also led the team in fewest strikeouts, just four in 32 at bats.

Kentrell Beck showed the most power at the plate, launching three home runs, driving in a team-high 16 runs and a team-high slugging percentage (.784). He also showed speed. Beck stole a team-high 22 bases and never got caught. He had a team-high 18 hits, led the team in total bases (29) and in runs scored (23).

Brayden Vice hit .467. With 14 hits and a team-high 11 walks, he led the team in on base percentage (.619). He also was right behind Beck in slugging percentage (.767). Vice hit two home runs, had a team-high three doubles, and drove in 10 runs.

Three more players hit over .300, bringing the total to six. Peyton Brant hit .391, Grant Mose hit .385, and Colten Reed hit .333. Will Leach hit .267, with eight hits and 10 walks, to give him an on base percentage of .450. Those six players hit .406 as a group.

The top four Rams pitchers had a record of 9-3 with two saves. Those four pitched 53.2 innings and gave up 50 earned runs, while striking out 87 batters. Their combined ERA was .468. Those four gave up just 1.73 walks/hits per inning.
