The weather is warming up and Ben Ross’ bat is heating up for Corban University in Salem, Oregon.


The senior outfielder from Wasilla finished the month of February with a .300 batting average after going 15-for-50 at the plate.


He has hit safely in 13 of the last 15 games, a hot streak that helped the Alaskan raise his batting average 64 points to .275.


Ross, of Wasilla Post 35 fame, just had his 9-game hitting streak snapped and is currently riding a 4-game streak.


He ranks third on his team with five doubles and is one of six players at Corban to reach double figures in RBIs [10].


Ross has one home run, giving him six for his career.


Two years ago, he hit five bombs at Blue Mountain Community College en route to earning All-NWAC honors and winning the team MVP award. He did not play last season.
