Pinellas Athlete of the Week
East Lake H.S. Baseball/Sophomore
THIS WEEK’S FEATS
Making only his second start of his varsity career, Plaskett practically shut down Mosley High for four innings on Friday night. Although his effort ended in a loss, he surrendered just one run, five hits and a walk to the top offensive team at this year’s Dunedin High School Spring Baseball Tournament.
In addition to his commendable effort from the hill, Plaskett also reached base safely in all three of his at bats during Friday night’s title game. The sophomore singled, walked and was hit by a pitch.
“That’s a sophomore right there and his second career start. He manned up today and we’re proud of him.” – East Lake coach Dan Genna on Plaskett’s performance.
