Complete 2014 HarbourCats Stats - we do the work, so you don't have to!

With the college season officially through its first quarter, it's worth a look at how our future HarbourCats are fairing as a collective group. The following stats have been compiled through a scour of the college stat packages produced for each team to create a "what if" look at our boys as if they played as a single team.

N/S = No Stats available

Oregon Beaver Gabe Clark, hitting .464
So far, looks like hitting isn't an issue, with 5 players hitting over .300, 3 of them over .400! That's a team .259 batting average, and a .346 On base percentage. Good speed on the base paths as well, with 14 steals.

Pitching is lighter, with most of the HarbourCats pitchers seeing spot duty only. Bret Helton is throwing some serious heat with 16 Ks in 22.2 innings pitched though - and he's hitting .333 in 15 at bats. With those kind of stats, perhaps the HarbourCats decline the DH...

Keep in mind, this is not a full roster. There are still more players to be signed as we move toward opening day. Expect more pitching help and depth players to be added...

  • As the stats show, UNM's Danny Collier has had a standout week. Described by coach Ray Birmingham as one of the biggest surprises out of fall camp, Collier has started 6 straight games and is lighting it up, hitting .385 against some tough conference pitching. Fellow Lobo Carson Schneider earned his first save this past week, and has not allowed an earned run in 7 appearances.
  • And while we are on the Lobos, Last year's fan favourite Alex Real has been honoured as a player to watch for the 2014 Johnny Bench Award, given annually to the top college catcher. It's the Heisman trophy for catchers, the top award given at that position. Alex can thank his time in Victoria for giving him some great experience behind the plate!
  • Pepperdine catcher Aaron Barnett will look to fill Real's shoes in Victoria this summer, and he's showing he's up to the task. Starting all 15 games for the Waves this year, he's leading the team in batting average and hits while holding a .988 fielding percentage
