Baseball: The first batch of stat leaders

It’s been a sluggish start to the baseball season thanks to Mother Nature, and the vast majority of teams have only just a handful of games under their belts. (Heck, the Christian Academy had to wait until Monday for their first game of the season.) But the sun is starting to shine, games are starting to trickle in and stats are being accumulated, which means there’s finally enough to post some version of stat leaders up here. As always, you can find them under the Spring Sports Baseball tab above, but here’s a little rundown of the early landscape.

The chilly conditions are doubles weather, apparently. While only one player in the county had hit multiple triples or home runs through Monday, the doubles are flowing freely, led by Haverford’s Nick Cerelli with five, while three players (Interboro’s Noah Brisach, Haverford School’s David Hogarth and Strath Haven’s James Kantner) have four apiece. The triples leaderboard is a bunch of guys stuck on one, while Haverford School’s two-time All-Delco Kevin McGowan has wielded the power with four home runs this season. That’s why he’s also the leader in terms of extra-base hits with eight.

On the mound, five players have bagged three wins apiece, led by the Haverford School duo of Mike Gindhart and Ben Tracy. Archbishop Carroll’s JJ Cicala, who also has two wins, is among three players with two saves each, joining Marple Newtown’s Ricky Collings and Haverford School’s Justin Meyer.
