Jason Moultrup, the catcher for the Chester A. Arthur School Presidents, hit a trio of home runs today in a game against the visiting Danbury Central College Dimes in San Jose, California.
With the feat, Moultrup now has 17 homers on the season, and is maintaining a .270 batting average over 42 games.
Moultrup has enjoyed some attention from Bull League scouts, with the OOTP Scouting Association predicting the 21-year-old right-handed batter to hit big numbers in the future, with a short but powerful swing and a reasonably patient approach at the plate. He’s a solid two way player, as well, and has yet to make an error this season, along with throwing out around 40% of runners attempting to steal.
The Birmingham, Alabama native took up baseball for the first time in college, first joining the junior team at Chester A. Arthur School, where he studies political science and crochet.
Moultrup has had a great college season since making the competitive team this year, and was named Player of the Week back in March, and played in the Can-Am College League All-Star Game. He hit three home runs earlier in the season against the Vermont Botanical Academy Foresters back on March 5; one of those was a Grand Slam.
