Bigge Goes Big As Harvard Takes Series LeadAt The Ballpark
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — In the D1 Baseball Ivy League preseason preview back in February, our scouting guru David Seifert made Harvard’s Hunter Bigge as his No. 1 professional prospect out of the Ancient Eight for this coming June’s MLB draft. And with good reason.
Today, Bigge showed his sizable potential both on the mound and at the plate as he was THE main reason Harvard took a one-to-zero lead in this best of three series via a 3-1 win. He threw his first career nine-inning complete game and gave up just four hits in the process. To add to his heroism, he also homered in the bottom of the seventh inning for a lead the Crimson would not relent.
Not to be too outdone, Mr. Seifert also listed Columbia lefthanded pitcher Josh Simpson as his No. 2 professional prospect in the Ivy League, and he did not disappoint today either, nearly going pitch-for-pitch with Bigge. Simpson threw into the eighth inning and only gave up five hits and two walks, despite taking the loss. His effort was a gut-check, and he came out of it with a gold star. He just didn’t get the support of his teammates bats.
