Norfolk State Alsander Womack Named 1 of Top 100 Hitters In NCAA




Norfolk State Sports Information


NORFOLK, Va. – Norfolk State junior second baseman Alsander Womack was named one of the top 100 hitters in college baseball by this week.

The well-regarded media outlet determined the rankings based on a full season of 2019 statistics and stats from the first four weeks of 2020. To qualify, a hitter must have had a minimum of 150 plate appearances in 2019 and 35 in 2020.

The list was compiled by using a computer algorithm which breaks down hitting into three categories: plate discipline, hit ability and game power, and combined them to calculate an analytics score. The rankings are computed with an adjustment to account for park effects of the most extreme hitter and pitcher-friendly parks, as well as an adjustment for a team’s strength of schedule.

Womack, the Preseason MEAC Player of the Year, ranked No. 91 on the list and was the only conference player to crack the top 100. Womack was batting .284 with five doubles and seven runs batted in when the 2020 season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He struck out just twice in 67 at-bats.

Last season, Womack was a first-team All-MEAC selection after batting .377 with three homers, 10 doubles and 31 runs batted in. He finished the season ranked 28th nationally in hits per game (1.5), 31st in average and 54th in toughest to strikeout (16 in 167 at-bats).
