Mar 8, 11, 08:53 PM #4Congrats to Norton. I remember Brossart's game against Ryle last season and he put on an absolute hitting clinic. I believe he hit 4 doubles, each one smoked harder than the next. He has an awesome-looking swing and great bat speed. It really was fun watching him hit, though it might have been a touch more enjoyable had some of those laser shots been hit right at Ryle's OF'ers. Best of luck to him at NKU and beyond.
BTW, not to take anything away from Norton whatsoever, but Conner Hempel was the top hitter average-wise in NKY in 2010 with a .509 average.
