Scott Hilpert: Power-hitting Utility Player with 22 Homeruns in Junior/Senior Year

Scott Hilpert is an offensive threat out of Kennewick, Washington. Throughout his college career, Scott saw 420 AB’s while holding a .329 batting average with an impressive .407 OBP. He is among Linfield College record holders for homeruns (23), slugging percentage (.569), triples (7), total bases (239), and sacrifice hits (23). He was on track to be drafted after his senior season, but after breaking his leg in the final game of the regular season, Scott unfortunately missed the draft.

Now that he is back to 100%, Scott is looking for another opportunity to get back into the game. He has always wanted to travel, but was unable to do so since he was committed to playing baseball year-round. Now that he has the opportunity, he would like the chance to travel abroad and play baseball overseas. He would be a great addition to any team that is in need of a big bat in their lineup. He can play either outfield or infield and would be open to coaching youth alongside playing. Scott is looking for a team who can provide flights, accommodations, and a small salary to cover living expenses. If possible, he would like to play with his college teammate Ben Andrews.

Scott played at Linfield College and was named Player of the Year in our conference his Senior season. He can hit, run and throw.  Scott was one of hardest workers in the weight room, and really transformed his body in the four years he was here at Linfield.  One of the biggest joys I have as a coach here at Linfield is seeing that our upper classmen are the hardest workers, and how they brought that work ethic to the entire team.  Scott was always getting the younger players to come lift or hit with him and that type of leadership is invaluable.

Scott was and will be a great team mate and brings a ton of joy to the baseball field.  I know I miss that big smile and ready to go attitude that Scott brings every day.  I believe that Scott will be a tremendous asset to an overseas club.
