Jay Hammett, 1B, St. Mary’s College of Maryland

Redshirt Sophomore/Colton’s Point/ Chopticon HS/ Bats/Throws: R/R

Hammett had an impressive year at the plate in 2017. He led the Seahawks in nearly every offensive category – batting average (.345), hits (38), doubles (10), home runs (3), and RBIs (28). Hammett’s batting average landed him in the top 20 in the Capital Athletic Conference.

The Seahawks (9-22 overall, 3-15 conference) are coming off a season to forget after finishing last in the CAC. In his second year as head coach, Bernie Stratchko will look to repeat the same success he had as an assistant coach at Frostburg. Stratchko has strong ties to Southern Maryland and is considered an excellent recruiter. His biggest opponent so far has been weather. Five of the Seahawks (0-1) first six games were canceled or postponed.
