It would be hard to ask RJ Schreck to have a better first game back coming off a pandemic. The junior outfielder for Duke lit up the stat sheet on opening day against Coastal Carolina, posting three hits in four at bats including a double, three runs batted in and a run scored in the 12-4 Blue Devil win. He has hardly lost a step in the months since. Out of the 27 games he has appeared in, 10 were multi-hit efforts, including two more three-hit games against Boston College and Notre Dame.
Schreck does it all at the plate for Duke, leading in most offensive categories. He leads the team in batting average (.327), OPS (.975) home runs (6) and runs batted in (22). In a three-game series against Boston College from 2/26-2/28, Schreck was 7-13 with 8 RBI and a home run. Adding to his already impressive offensive resume, he has been getting it done on the bases for the Blue Devils, stealing seven bases in as many attempts, good enough for second on the team, and establishing himself as one of the most impressive offensive players in the ACC.
Before Duke, the LA native was a 2018 graduate of Harvard-Westlake High School, where he was named to the All-CIF First Team in 2017, and First Team All-State after his senior season in 2018. This is exciting to see for fans of the Arroyo Seco Saints, as he travels back west for the summer of 2021, hoping to continue his offensive dominance.
