D3 Baseball is a level of NCAA baseball driven by some of the best hitting numbers you will find in all of collegiate play, and that is no different when lowering the scope down to one conference, the WIAC.
The WIAC — home to seven schools including six in the state of Wisconsin — holds some of the best offensive talent in the game and it is hard to figure out just who is the best.
But that is why we are recruiting your help, with the goal to vote and find the best hitter in the conference. We have narrowed the field to five nominees, and you can vote in the poll below.
Voting will close on March 30 at 11:00 a.m. PST, so make sure to get your vote in quickly and spread the word.
Key Stats: .400 / 4 HR / 21 RBI
Through the first 12 games of the year, Grimm has been anything but what his last name imply as he has torn through the opposition. He tops the league in all three categories above, including average for those who have played at least 10 games.
Key Stats: .377 / .492 OBP / 15 RBI
Moses is second in the league behind Grimm with 36 total bases in 13 contests. The sophomore has been an on base machine to this point, and has come in at clutch situations as well with 15 runs driven in.
Key Stats: .625 AVG / 3 HR / 10 RBI
Though the Whitewater standout has played in just five games, those numbers above are outstanding to start the year for one of the best players in D3 Baseball over the last few seasons. Though the average is likely to dip slightly over the course of the season, expect the power and run production to continue at this great pace.
Key Stats: .265 AVG / 12 RBI / 4 SB
One of the top bats for the Warhawks so far, the junior infielder has also been a big producer for stolen bases in the team's first nine games. One of the more consistent programs in the country over the last five-or-so years, look for Heili to lead this crom of La Crosse stars this season.
Michael Courtney, Illinois Tech
Key Stts: .355 AVG / .484 SLG / .958 OPS
A new addition to the league, Courtney and Illinois Tech have gotten off to a decent start both individually and overall at 8-4. His line above places him among the best players with at least 10 games played, showing consistency that could last all year long.
