Barstow Community College catcher Juneau’s Brock McCormick has plugged into a power source.
After he hit zero home runs in his first 55 college games, the sophomore has blasted four bombs in his last 14 games.
He hit three homers in the month of March, including one last week against Victor Valley that helped him earn Inland Empire Athletic Conference offensive player of the week honors.
McCormick went 5-for-11 with four extra-base hits in the three-game series against Victor Valley. In one of those matchups he had his first three-hit game of the season and fourth of his 69-game career.
Since Feb. 23, the 6-foot-2 Alaskan has banged out 12 of his 14 extra-base hits to fuel a career-high .489 slugging percentage (76 points higher than last season as a freshman).
McCormick is hitting .255 in 29 games with 22 runs and 13 RBIs, although his batting average has climbed considerably over his last nine games thanks to a 13-for-31 clip.
