Cody Kidd Breaks B-W’s Season & Career Scoring Records

Just a couple of days after he broke B-W’s career triples record, senior center fielder Cody Kidd ran away with the Yellow Jackets’ season and career scoring records during the second game of last Saturday’s doubleheader at Marietta College.

Kidd broke hall of fame center fielder Erik Young‘s 20-year-old career scoring record of 136 runs in the third inning when he scrambled home from third base on a catcher’s throwing error. Four innings later, he nabbed the season record by legging out a triple and scoring on a wild pitch. It was his 48th trip across home plate this year, moving him past the previous record holder, All–Mideast Region designated hitter Paul Farrah, who crossed the plate 47 times in 1988.

The two-out, two-run triple that put Kidd in position to pass Farrah tied the single-season triples record of five set by hall of fame pitcher Pat George in 1976 and matched by All–Mideast Region outfielder Pete Rowe in 2002.
