Former North Kitsap star Jared Prince of the Myrtle Beach (S.C.)
Pelicans was named to the Class A Carolina League All-Star team.
The Texas Rangers’ farm hand made it as a utility outfielder.
Here’s what the press release reported on Prince:
After a brutal 4-for-45 start to the season, the Washington
State University product has been a constant engine in the Myrtle
Beach order, batting .297 in 116 games since. The versatile
offensive performer has spent 13 games or more at the second,
third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh spots in the order and
currently leads Pelicans regulars in games played (128), average
(.278) and RBI (67) and is tied for the team lead in hits (131),
walks (45), and doubles (29). Prince leads the Carolina League in
on-base percentage (.371) and is the second-hardest batter to
strike out in the league with one K per 11.83 plate appearances.
The Poulsbo native also has made his mark on the Carolina League in
a more painful way. Prince has been hit by pitches 29 times this
season, a mark that ranks second in all of Carolina League history,
one behind the single-season league record set by Winston-Salem’s
Seth Loman last season
