Today's Daily Bruin has a fine story on Beau Amaral, Cody Keefer and Cody Regis -- three left-handed swinging freshmen who are to the Bruins batting order what Cole, Bauer and Rasmussen are to the pitching staff.
I like that cool picture, too. Here is the summary statement:
Thanks in large part to the contributions of Beau Amaral, Cody Keefer and Cody Regis – all freshmen, and all left-handed at the plate – UCLA’s lineup has a balance of young and old that a tightrope walker would be proud of.
“Those guys are very advanced for their age,” sixth-year coach John Savage said. “I think they’ve proven that.”
Amaral, Keefer and Regis have been staples in Savage’s lineup – and for good reason. The trio has hit a combined .325 (135-for-416) with seven home runs and 81 runs batted in.
