Anaheim, CA, August 17, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Trevor Hairgrove is showing the city of Anaheim and the baseball world everything he has. Trevor was taken in the 18th round by the Angels in the 2011 MLB draft. Angel scouts saw potential when they noticed his team leading .336 batting average and seventy-two hits in his senior year at the University of California Riverside. With such tremendous potential, The McFadden Agency and Scott McFadden, Director of Baseball Operations, gladly welcomed Hairgrove to their team.
“This is exactly the type of fielder we’re looking for,” says McFadden, “He’s one of those players who gets hot, and stays hot. We’re looking forward to watching him develop.”
By the end of the 2011 season, Trevor led UC Riverside in batting average (.336), slugging percentage (.453), hits (72), and led the Big West Conference in assists (168). He was also named to the ABCA First-Team All-West Region.
After the draft, Trevor began his professional career playing rookie ball with the Orem Owlz. In his first game he made his presence known with a run that led to a 7-6 victory over the Casper Ghosts. Due to his instant success Hairgrove was quickly promoted to the starting shortstop as he began August with a bang with 5 hits and 4 runs in the first 3 games. Trevor is pleased with his success and he hopes to continue to advance until he reaches the Majors.
