Marc Flores, Hawaii

It has been a dismal summer for me thus far.  You can only take so many cheap gimmicks and stunts before asking yourself, “Why did I sign up for this?” One of the rare bright spots in an abyss of monotony has been watching talented hitters like Hawaii 1b/OF Marc Flores. After one month of summer ball, the 6-foot-4 225 pound Flores has a robust OBP of .392 and he is top ten in offensive Northwoods League categories of Home Runs (6) and RBI (27).  Last night, he hit two doubles and now has a season total of 11. I like Flores, his power at the plate reminds me a bit of a Jack Cust.  Flores is an  impressive hitter and he is strong, able to generate power on a consistent basis. Marc finished his junior season at Hawaii recently and hit .280 for the Rainbow Warriors.  It is exciting to see him put a charge in the ball as it jumps of his wooden bat.
