Alberta Dugout Digest – April 23rd Edition

It’s time once again to check in on the best hitters and pitchers from our province who have traveled south to play college baseball in the United States.

We also examine the pitchers who have done the best job of preventing home runs, the strikeout leaders, the win collectors, the earned-run average (ERA) masters, and those hurlers who are great at keeping hits to a minimum.

Over seven starts, the righthander has hurled 46.2 innings, racked up 59 strikeouts, picked up three wins and posted an earned-run average of just 1.54. Not a bad stat line for the graduate of the Vauxhall Academy of Baseball, who recently recorded a career-high 13 strikeouts against Oregon State.

Burgmann was kind enough to make time for Alberta Dugout Stories recently.
