August 3, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (Less = More?)

You would think with the Carolina League, Florida State League, the Midwest & Northwest League’s all with a scheduled day off yesterday, only one game scheduled in the Appalachian League, one suspended game along with five postponements in the Gulf Coast League and the Pioneer League off as well, today’s list would be slim pickens’. Oh no no no. UTR made darn sure that Marc wasn’t going to rest any longer after taking several days off (in Disney; which was wonderful by the way). In fact, today’s list might be one of my largest of the entire season. Several players and a few [entire] teams brought serious lumber to the ball park yesterday. Good thing, because as Jim stated just the other day, our tracking season is winding down so grab as many UTR kids as possible for your own spreadsheets.  The Hitters of the Day and top Pitcher Performances has only have a few weeks to go before we wrap things up for the regular season. Jim and I have already begun  preparation work for the off-season which we hope is as successful as 2014.  More than likely, our Organizational All-Star schedule will be similar to last year, but Jim and I have to sit down and finalize formatting and our 2015 posting schedule. As soon as we put the final brush strokes on that, we’ll inform readers.  For now, enjoy today’s HOD installment.
