The honors continue to pour in for Mississippi State’s Brent Rooker.

A week after being named the Most Improved Player in the New England Collegiate Baseball League, the sophomore outfielder was selected as its Most Valuable Player as well.

Rooker hit .360 and led the league with 59 hits, 10 home runs, 33 RBIs, 36 runs, 99 total bases, 164 at bats and a .604 slugging percentage.

β€œHis two summers in Plymouth were very impressive and showed how much he developed,” said Plymouth head coach Greg Zackrison. β€œHe came to Plymouth this summer and accomplished his goal to prove he is a top prospect. The best part about Brent winning this award is he is the complete package, a great player and an even better young man.”

The Germantown, Tenn., native concluded his summer with the Brewster Whitecaps in the Cape Cod League where he had a double, triple, homer and two RBIs in four games.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
