Baseball's Matt Hollenbeck Selected as Top Prospect in Summer League
WASHINGTON\ - Georgetown University sophomore baseball player Matt Hollenbeck (Horsham, Pa./Hatboro-Horsham) was selected as one of the top prospects in the Atlantic Summer Collegiate Baseball League by Perfect Game.
Hollenbeck played this summer for the Quakertown (Pa.) Blazers of the Atlantic League, a 17-team league composed mainly of teams in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
A 6-1, 200-pound sophomore, the left-hander posted a 1-0 record with a 5.51 earned run average during the summer. He made nine appearances, four starts, and struck out 33 batters in 32.2 innings. He was rated the 12th best prospect in the league.
During the 2012 regular season at Georgetown, Hollenbeck finished with an 0-3 record, but carried a 4.26 ERA in 16 appearances, throwing 19 innings and striking out 12 batters.
Hollenbeck's selection caps off a terrific summer for the Hoyas, as senior center field Justin Leeson (Exton, Pa./West Chester) had a tremendous season with the Bourne Braves in the Cape Cod League and junior first baseman Steve Anderson (Albany, N.Y./Guilderland) played for the top-rated summer team in the nation, the Newport (R.I.) Gulls of the New England Collegiate League.
