Austin Glorius Ties High School Record with Five Home Runs and 17 RBIs

Windermere Prep senior Austin Glorius had a game befitting his last name on Thursday against Faith Christian. His team won 38-0 in a clear mismatch, and Glorius had a contest for the ages.

The senior tied a national record belting five home runs and driving in 17 runs. He actually would have had 18 ribbies but a runner was called out for not touching a base in the 5th.

Curious how one amasses five homers and 17 RBIs in a game? The Orlando Sentinel says he walked and hit a three-run homer in the first inning. He followed with a grand slam and two-run double in the second, a grand slam in the third, and two-run homers in the fourth and fifth.

I’m sure his competition was extremely weak — as the 38-0 score indicates — but a player has to be extremely locked in to put up those kinds of stats. I mean we’ve seen Mike Moustakas drive in 11 runs in a minor league game and Bryce Harper hit four dingers in a game, but 17 RBIs is special. Congrats to Glorius on the impressive performance.
