2016 Maryland Baseball Season Highlights

The Terps are back in College Park after a summer in which they criss-crossed the country, from Alaska to Massachusetts. With classes getting underway this week, it’s back to business in College Park, so be sure to check in with MBN for complete fall ball coverage. In the meantime, we take a look back with highlights from the 2016 Maryland Baseball season.

Nick Dunn enjoying early success in Cape League

On the heels of a Freshman All-American season that saw him lead the Terps in batting average and hits, Nick Dunn is continuing his success in the Cape Cod Baseball League.

The second baseman is playing for the Brewster Whitecaps, one of ten teams in the league. Although the Whitecaps have played just three games, Dunn has already shined, both in the field and at the plate. While the freshman went 0-4 in the season opener, he has gone 7-10 since, bringing his average on the season to .500 (7-14).

Dunn has put together back-to-back three-hit ballgames. The first came against the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, the team Maryland shortstop Kevin Smith is playing for this summer. Dunn went 3-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored, helping Brewster to an 11-6 win.. The following afternoon, Dunn reached base five times in his six at-bats. He went 4-5 with a walk, scoring three runs scored and notching one RBI in 14-6 victory over the Chatham Anglers.
