Bynum crushes first college HR, bumps average to .329
The freshman center fielder hit his first home run for Arizona Western College during a 14-3 win over Scottsdale Community College in Arizona.
“It felt great to get my first home run as a college player but that’s not what I swing for,” Bynum told me. “I swing for the team and the situation we are in.”
The former Alaska player of the year out of Monroe Catholic High hit a two-run shot over the center field fence for his only hit in three at-bats. The game lasted only five innings.
Bynum raised his batting average to .329 in 41 games.
He ranks No. 1 on the team with 8 stolen bases, second with 22 walks and 31 runs and third with 29 RBIs and a .451 on-base percentage.
Bynum is batting .500 since March 7 [28-for-56].
