Dan Morton is a 21 year old junior with Rocky Mountain U’s Steamwheelers, but already he’s showing power and contact that could shake up the college leagues.
Morton was 4-for-7 with 2 HR’s, 2 runs and 3 RBIs in the opening series against Vermont Botanical Academy this week. In the opening game, he was 2-for-4, hitting in a runner to score and stealing a base in the 6th inning. Then, he was 2-for-3 the next day, with both of his hits coming as solo homers, and improving to a .571 average.
RMU split the Vermont series, but Morton wasn’t phased and scouts will be taking notice of his at-bats for the rest of the college season.
