St. Ambrose University senior-to-be J Golden is off to a solid start for the Hannibal Cavemen in the Prospect League, a summer collegiate wood-bat baseball league.|
In Saturday's 9-1 victory over Dubois County, Golden was 2-for-4 with a grand slam and drove in five runs.
Golden, the team's leadoff hitter, leads the Cavemen with a .366 batting average (30-for-82) and ranks sixth in the league in batting. He also has scored 20 runs, driven in 12 and stolen three bases. He has four doubles, two triples, and his grand slam was first homer of the summer. He also has drawn 12 walks.
The shortstop was an All-Midwest Collegiate Conference selection this spring. The 2009 Davenport Assumption graduate was also an NJCAA All-American at Black Hawk College in Moline after helping the Knights to a high school state title in 2008.
