Luis Amaro, Top Offensive Player in North Jersey Eagles History

Luis Amaro, Top Offensive Player in North Jersey Eagles History


By Thomas Terzulli | North Jersey Eagles

The Eagles all-time greatest hitter has added another notch to his already spectacular resume. First baseman Luis Amaro launched his eighth home run of the season on July 22nd against the Pilots, smashing the Eagle single season record.

The power lefty from West Texas A&M propelled himself past Stanley Paul, an infielder from UConn who went deep seven times in 2012.

This is Amaro’s staggering seventh franchise record in Eagle pinstripes. He set a season mark for runs batted in last summer when he knocked in 28 and tops the career charts in 5 categories. No Eagle has more career doubles (24), RBI’s (73), walks (59) hit by pitches (13) or home runs (17). The home run total is 4th highest in the 51-year history of the American Collegiate Baseball League. His .611 career slugging percentage ranks in the same spot.

The season the 5-11, 210-pounder has had in 2017 is a big reason why the Eagles are a playoff team for the first time since 2013. He is among the ACBL leaders in a plethora of offensive categories. The numbers read third best in batting average (388), second in homers (8), fourth in runs batted in (27) and tied for first in runs scored (25).

By the end of this year’s campaign, he could be on the cusp of history once again. He is second in another four areas in Eagle history. The Roselle Park, New Jersey native has played in 95 games and came to bat 280 times, smacking 94 hits and coming around to score 59 runs. His three-year teammate Shane Woelfel is the leader in the last two categories with 96 hits, crossing home plate 61 times.

Amaro has six regular season games left in 2017 to build on what has already been an astounding, record-breaking career.
