For the 2008 Harrisonburg Turks, runs were sometimes difficult to come by. This issue, however, could not be laid at the feet of San Francisco's Drew Johnson, who led the Turks in almost every offensive category.
Now a senior at SF, Johnson hammered the ball all season for the Turks. In 43 games, he hit 364/413/558, with 32 runs, 56 hits, 10 doubles, 6 home runs, a 13/39 BB/K ratio, and even 8 stolen bases in 9 attempts. He finished 3rd in the league in average, 4th in hits, 7th in runs, tied for 5th in total bases, 7th in on-base percentage, and 3rd in slugging percentage. As these stats indicate, Drew had an impressive season both in getting on base and hitting for power. He was named to the All-League first team in the outfield.
Johnson spent his first two college seasons at Nevada-Reno. In his freshman year, he had only 20 at-bats, hitting 050/136/050. In his sophomore season, he played more (relatively), appearing in 47 games and coming to the plate 69 times, and hit 203/253/478. He then transferred to San Francisco. After redshirting in 2007, he played in 49 games in 2008, his junior season, hitting 232/306/313.
I think it's safe to say that the summer of 2008 was Drew's "coming out" party as a top hitter- I'll be surprised if he doesn't have a huge senior year!
