Dalton Hurd is the starting centerfielder for the Seattle University Redhawks. The senior outfielder is from Bend, Oregon and he is a 4-year starter for the Redhawks. He plays solid defense and is a top-notch hitter for the Redhawks and he stands only 5’9. Dalton Hurd has been a man on a mission from day one in 2015 and has been a non-stop hitting machine, proving that someone with his size and strength can succeed at this level. The Redhawks are currently sitting near the top of the standings with a 27-11 record, and though there are many stars on this team, he is clearly the leader on the field.

Dalton Hurd’s career stats are ridiculous. Over his four years he has a batting average of .300 with 19 home runs and 118 RBIs. He has a lifetime slugging percentage of .447 and an on base percentage of .382. In the field, over his 4 years, he has made only 6 errors. Yes, that’s not a misprint. He has started 194 games of 202 and recently broke the all-time hit record at Seattle University with his 215th hit passing Griffin Andreychuk who played from 2014-2017 (he currently sits at 222 hits and counting).

What lies next for Dalton Hurd one doesn’t know. Seattle Sports Union is sure that he is focused on getting his Redhawks more victories and into the playoffs. Major League Baseball should have their eyes on this kid this June, because those who don’t are missing out.

Best of luck to you Dalton Hurd. It’s been a pleasure watching you play. We are hoping for great things for you. One thing for sure we know, you are blessed on and off the field.

Go Redhawks!
