Morris, Fletcher earn high praise
Hey everyone. Hunter Morris and Brian Fletcher, a pair of young men who play baseball at Auburn University, were named to the All-America team today.
A deserving achievement, if you ask me.
You didn't. But if you had ...
Morris, a first baseman, was named to the first team. Fletcher, an outfielder, is part of the second team.
Morris was the Southeastern Conference's Player of the Year after leading the league in homers, RBI, slugging percentage and total bases. Not too shabby. He was a fourth-round selection of the Milwaukee Brewers last week.
(It's pronounced "mill-e-wah-kay," which is Algonquin for "the good land.")
His final line looked a little something like this: .386-23-76.
Fletcher went .357-22-75. He was an 18th-round pick of the Kansas City Royals.
