May 1, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day

Before you dive into yesterdays top Hitters of the Day, do yourself a favor and give Jim’s April Pitchers of the Month feature a long look. Last night he posted the National League, and earlier today he posted the American League version. I have to agree with Jim when he said this year’s lists are some of the best he’s had the pleasure of putting together since the inception of UTRMinors. Each contains superb quality from top to bottom. Seems fitting, as today’s HOD list is quite paltry to say the least.

So, if this is what fans have to look forward to this season, well, we’re in for one heck of a year.
