Washington's Will Sparks 4th Elk to win WCL Batting Title
University of Washington outfielder Will Sparks won the WCL batting championship for the 2012 season. Sparks, from Saratoga, California hit.392, collecting 62 hits with 13 doubles, 2 HR's and 23 RBIs. Sparks who was overlooked for the 2012 All Star Game, joins fellow Elks: Arizona State infielder Eric Sogard ( 2006) Gonzaga outfielder Drew Heid (2008) and Washington State infielder Tommy Richards ( 2010) winning the title. The classic crown jewel ball park, Vince Genna Stadium, with its boisterous crowds no doubt produces a heighten awareness making hitting here upbeat, fun, and focused for Elks hitters.
