Charlottesville Regional Team Capsules - Third Seed Appalachian State

via image.cdnllnwnl.xosnetwork.com

Don't let the third seed fool you. The Mountaineers can come to play and they can for sure bring the wood. As a team they have belted 43 home runs and knocked in 356 RBI. Despite the fact that they are making their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1986 the Southern Conference regular season champions don't plan on being an easy out for anyone.

Tyler Tewell leads a group of six Mountaineer batters who are hitting .300 or better. His 43 RBI on the season are the second most on the team and he has a ridiculous .375 batting average. Daniel Kassouf is batting .345 with team highs in home runs (17) and RBI (60). Brandon Burris (.370), Tyler Zupcic (.338), Will Callaway (.330) and Hector Crespo (.317) are the remaining batters hitting above .300.
