Zach Stone returns this summer for his second season in New Bedford.
Last summer, Stone had a stellar season with the Bay Sox. He set a new NECBL record for runs scored in a season with 45, and led the league in hits with 64. Stone set numerous team records, including runs scored (45), hits (64), and doubles (14). In 41 games, he hit an impressive .374 with 4 home runs and 32 RBIs, and was fourth in the league in on-base percentage (.455) and total bases (90). Stone was named an NECBL All-Star and Second Team All-NECBL at third base.
In 2012, Stone was Millersville University’s top run producer for the second season in a row. He was the first player in over a decade to lead the team in RBIs in back-to-back seasons, with a two year total of 79. Despite not being 100% healthy, he still started 46 of 49 games, batted .295, led the team in home runs, and was second in OBP and SLG. Stone was one of just two players on the team with more walks than strikeouts and ranked 53rd in the nation in toughest to strike out.
In 2011, Stone turned in one of the best freshman seasons in Millersville history. He led the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference in RBIs with 46, was fifth in hits (66), third in doubles (19), fifth in runs scored (46), and 12th in batting average. He also won the ACBA Atlantic Region Gold Glove with a .943 fielding percentage and 102 assists. Stone started 55 of the team’s 56 games at third base, and hit safely in 10 of 11 postseason games while leading the team in batting average, doubles, RBIs, and on-base percentage.
