Anchorage's Jonny Homza earlier this week banged out his 100th career base hit, making the former South Legion Post 4 all-star just the seventh Alaskan to reach the century mark in professional baseball.


The third-year catcher, 20, accomplished the feat in 122 career games.


The 2017 San Diego Padres fifth-round draft pick is currently playing for the Tri-City Dust Devils of the Class-A Northwest League.


Homza is hitting a career-high .245 with eight doubles, 10 RBIs and 11 walks in 28 games.


At catcher, his fielding percentage is .995 with a career-high 11.37 range factor.


The former infielder has allowed only one passed ball in 166 innings - compared to 25 in the previous 278 innings.


The Alaska record for pro hits is held by Anchorage's Jamar Hill, who rapped out 816 hits from 2002 to 2011.
