Hitting apparently runs in the Posey family. Buster Posey won the NL Rookie of the Year last season with the Giants and helped lead them to the World Series title. His younger sister Samantha Posey is also a slugger, leading her Valdosta State D-II squad with a .468 average, eight home runs, .909 slugging percentage and .512 on-base percentage. The younger Posey grabbed national headlines for her amazing performance on Monday.
In a double-header against Albany State, Samantha went 5-for-7 with four home runs and 11 RBIs. Her team swept the two games by a combined 29-0, but the real story was that Samantha hit for the home run cycle, knocking out a solo home run, two-run home run, three-run home run, and a grand slam. I haven’t seen her hit but it sure looks like she has a similar swing to her wildly successful brother. Now all we need is to see her get drafted to compare the two at the professional level.
Valdosta State is ranked 4th in the country with a record of 31-6 on the year and Posey is the team’s top hitter.
