2008 Fall Baseball Season Statistics

For the 2008 Fall Baseball season, Jack was 13 for 25 at the plate for a batting average of .520. He drew 8 walks and was hit by a pitch just once. Jack's on-base percentage was .647 (22 for 34).

He struck out 8 times, but not once in the last four games. Interestingly, two of his best plate appearances when he was behind in the count came in the last two games. Walking to the Gunner's practice on Sunday, he turned to me and said "that was a pretty good at-bat yesterday." He fell behind 1 and 2, fouled off a half dozen pitches and eventually drew a walk.

Jack has been practicing with the Gunner's tournament team over the last month and will probably play in three or four tournaments over the rest of the year. I expect that he is going to get a rude awakening when he has to face more competitive pitching.

In 12 games, Jack played 21 1/3 innings in center, 11 innings at third, 10 2/3 innings at shortstop, 10 1/3 innings at first and 1 1/3 inning in left field. This is in stark contrast to the spring season when he played 77 innings at shortstop.
