Riley Kreisher Smashes B-W’s Single-Season RBI Record

Senior first baseman Riley Kreisher smashed the Yellow Jackets’ single-season record for runs batted in during last Saturday’s doubleheader at Marietta College.

Kreisher broke the record in his first at bat of the day with a two-run bomb to right-center field that soared over the flag poles at Don Schaly Stadium. After rounding the bases, he crossed home plate as his own 52nd RBI of the season and stepped past the previous mark set by All–Mideast Region first baseman Pat Shannon, who knocked in 50 runs in 2002.

The Ohio Athletic Conference RBI leader padded his new record with four more ribbies by smacking a couple of doubles in game two and belting another two-run homer in his last at bat of the afternoon.

He also had 17 putouts in the doubleheader, extending the career fielding record he set earlier this season to 923.
