CORPUS CHRISTI - How about the play of Hooks player Max Stassi, who has been tearing up the Texas League pitching, with home run after home run.
"I try to hit the ball hard and hopefully it goes far," Stassi said.
That is working for the 22-year-old catcher/designated hitter, who was just named the TOPPS Texas League Player of the Month for July. hitting .333 with 17 runs scored, 4 doubles, 1 triple, 11 home runs and 24 RBIs in 24 July games. Of those 11 blasts, 10 have come in the last 16 contests.
In his last 22 games, he is hitting .363 with 11 home runs (10 in his last 16 games), 25 RBIs and 17 runs.
