The Georgetown Baseball team is enjoying one of their most successful seasons in recent memory.
One of the main reasons for this success is junior third basemen Sean Lamont, whose career on the Hilltop can be summed up by one word: power. Lamont led the team in home runs, RBIs, runs, and slugging percentage during his first two years.
However, Lamont hurt his knee earlier this season, an injury that has forced him to miss a few key games.
“I’m hoping that Sean can get healthy and go on an offensive tear,” head coach Pete Wilk said. “He’s capable of carrying this team offensively.”
When Lamont is playing 100 percent, he has the ability to have a big impact on all aspects of the game. Besides being the team’s biggest power batter, Sean is also a clutch hitter, a skill he demonstrated with a walk off single in the bottom of the ninth inning to defeat to the George Washington Colonials on March 21st.
“Sean is right in the middle of everything we do, both on and off the field,” Wilk said. “He’s a leader who hits in the middle of the order and is a force for other teams to deal with.”
