PROVO, Utah – Senior Captain and catcher Bronson Larsen continues to impress with his sweet swing and strong defense.
His play has helped Brigham Young University baseball get off to a strong 5-2 start in conference play, and he’s been a strong contributor all year for the Cougars.
Bronson’s latest achievement was April 6 at Pacific when he hit his first career grand slam, leading the Cougars to a 6-0 series opening win. Bronson has not always been a leader, as his freshman year he only hit .158 over 20 games. This season, however, he is hitting a career best .348.
“I just think from year to year I’ve learned more about my game specifically. Just having confidence I think has been the biggest thing and just taking the time to relax a little bit,” Larsen said.
Larsen currently leads the team with 6 homers and is second in RBI with 31. He also boasts a .993 fielding percentage, as he has only committed one error all season. He’s also had a hit in 13 of the last 16 games.
The Bat Cats won 12-1 at Pacific on April 7, as well as 5-2 at Pacific on April 8. They’re set to play next at Utah Valley University on April 11.
