STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State catcher Hunter Renfroe, a sophomore from Crystal Springs, Miss., has been tabbed by Perfect Game USA as the top pro prospect on his collegiate summer league baseball team, the Bethesda (Md.) Big Train.
Renfroe hit .305 and hit a club-record and league-leading eight home runs in helping power Bethesda to a 36-9 record and its third consecutive Cal Ripken Collegiate League championship. Renfroe also notched a save in his lone pitching performance this summer with Bethesda. He was a 31st round draft pick of the Boston Red Sox in 2010.
Sophomore first baseman/pitcher Daryl Norris of Fairhope, Ala., was a teammate of Renfroe on the Big Train team. Bethesda claimed the No. 1 spot in Perfect Game’s season-ending top 50 ranking of summer collegiate leagues. That ranking included teams from more than 20 summer collegiate baseball leagues.
