Jeff Hunt Homers Twice For Six Rbis
Terrier alumni Jeff Hunt (3B) hit two homers Sunday afternoon, including a grand slam for the Ogden Raptors which is the Dodgers Class 'A' Rookie League affiliate. The Raptors play in the Pioneer League and Sunday's 15-7 Raptor win was against the Missoula Ospray (Arizona Diamondbacks).
Jeff's grand slam came in the fourth inning, and then he followed that up with a two run blast in the fifth. It was Hunt's third homer of the week.
Jeff was drafted by the LA Dodgers in 2009.
A graduate of Cambridge Minor Baseball, Jeff was scouted and recruited by Terriers Senior Advisors Walt Jeffries and Ed Heather. Right out of bantam baseball, Jeff was placed on the 18u Terriers roster, where his development sky rocketed very quickly. The following spring he was named to Canada's Junior National Team roster. He was also a member of Ontario's 2009 Canada Cup National Championship team.
Not much has changed since signing his pro contact, as he continues to excel in the Dodger Minor League system.
Jeff is hitting .292 with 16 RBI. Congratulations to Jeff and his family and continued success in professional baseball.
