Hewes Was More Than Just a HR Hitter for Augie!



Bookmark and Share

"Haven't hit a ton of homeruns in my life so I'm usually sprinting out of the box, not pimping it."  Nate Hewes says.

Nate Hewes may not think himself a power hitter.  But for one night on May 3rd, he broke out his homerun trot.  Three times.

"I have never done that before.  I couldn't believe it kept happening actually.  They kept throwing me fastballs inside so, I guess the wind was blowing out, so it was the right night to do it.."  Hewes says.

Perhaps Nate shouldn't be so surprised.  The Augustana senior was versatile at the plate, near the top of every offensive statistic, and in the field.

"Pretty gone rover at Augustana.  So, played short, second, third, left, center.  I mean, Huber had me catch for a little bit."  Hewes says.

"He's more of a leader by example type of person.  You know, he's not going to get in your face and those type of things, but I think our guys notice that he's a hard worker."  Augie Manager Tim Huber says.

And thanks in part to his big night, Nate also led the Vikings in homeruns.

With eight.
