Manzer homers to continue super start at Sonoma State

Posted by Van Williams, ALB Media Director | Mar 1, 2015

Adam Manzer of Anchorage has returned to college baseball with a bang.

The junior outfielder at NCAA D2 Sonoma State in California is hitting .333 in his first six games after sitting out last season as a transfer from College of Marin.

He slugged his first home run for Sonoma State in a 4-3 loss to Chico State and owns a .411 on-base percentage.

Manzer, of West High fame, was an all-star catcher in high school but now is a versatile outfielder for the Seawolves; he has already played defense in left, center and right field.

Two years ago, Manzer hit a career-high .279 in 32 games for College of Marin. He was one of the league’s hottest hitters in the final 12 games when he hit .373.
