WILSON – Kyle Brandenburg(Ragsdale HS/GTCC) knows success doesn’t come easy. After a tough season at Guilford Tech, he has become one of the top players for the Thomasville HiToms this season, driven by plenty of hard work and a little good fortune.
“The main thing for me is to have fun out there, have fun with your teammates, play for the Lord and play for my teammates,” said Brandenburg, a former standout at Ragsdale who will play at High Point University. “It’s been a fun season. Just being with the guys and the team, it’s been awesome.”
From the get-go, he has been a big key for the HiToms. In their 46 games so far, he has played in 43 and started 42, leading the team in batting average (.307), on-base percentage (.370), hits (50), total bases (69) and stolen bases (7). He’s also tied for the lead in triples (1) and home runs (4).
He is second in the Coastal Plain League in hits and 14th in batting average, in large part earning him a selection in Monday’s CPL All-Star Game in Wilson and a starting nod in the center field. But while his hitting is impressive in itself, his versatility is really what makes him stand out.
