Moose Jaw Miller Express outfielder Camron Grant knows a little bit about putting the baseball in play.
He did so in style throughout his high school career, claiming all-star honours in the process. Last summer in Expedition League action, more of the same. And now that he’s a member of Skyline College in his hometown of San Bruno, Cal., Grant is once again showing no signs of letting up.
And that could all make for some interesting times when Grant takes the plate at Ross Wells Park this summer.
Grant, in his freshman season with Skyline, enjoyed a spectacular high school career that saw the 6-foot-0, 225-pound outfielder named All League in the Peninsula Athletic League Ocean Division for his showing in the 2019 campaign.
Playing for Aragon High School, Grant hit .411 in his senior campaign and racked up six home runs and 33 runs batted in to go along with 10 doubles and a pair of triples in 25 games.
A year prior, Grant -- who also played football and basketball for Aragon -- was named the San Mateo Daily Journal boys athletes of the year after putting together stellar showings across all three sports.
Grant suited up last summer for the Canyon County Spuds in the Expedition League and despite facing college seniors for the first time, gave a decent accounting of himself -- a .236 batting average, 12 doubles, a home run and 24 RBI in 49 games.
That led him to the California Community Colleges Athletic Association and Skyline this fall, where Grant has quickly established himself as a player to watch since the Trojans' season opened in January.
With four games remaining in the regular season, Grant is currently hitting .347 with two home runs, 27 RBI and 17 runs scored.
He wasted little time getting things going, too.
After going hitless in his first two games, Grant strung together a nine-game hitting streak that included home runs in his next two contests to go along with a 3-for-4, three run, four RBI showing in a 13-0 win over Shasta College on Feb. 10
And if the CCCAA seems like a familiar name, the league is where Moose Jaw product and current Milller Express pitcher Reece Helland plied his trade with Monterey Peninsula for two seasons before joining MidAmerica Nazerene.
