He doesn’t take off days or at-bats, which is why Scooter Bynum of Fairbanks is one of the hottest hitters in the Northwoods League.

The centerfielder has played in each of the last seven days for the Bismarck Larks and leads his team with a .385 batting average, .551 on-base and .615 slugging percentage over that time.

Bynum, of Monroe Catholic High fame, mixed a blend of power and patience on the week with two home runs and six base on balls.

The left-handed batter out of Northern Illinois University is hitting .264 in the wood-bat league with three home runs and 15 RBIs in 19 games.

Thanks to his red-hot week, Bynum raised his average 68 points. It all started with a 4-for-5 performance against St. Cloud and continued against Mankato, La Crosse and Willmar.
