CARROLLTON, Ga. - Collegiate baseball players routinely spend their summer playing in wood bat leagues around the nation, and Cade Marlowe did so with flair in the summer of 2018, earning First Team All-Coastal Plain League honors while playing for the Savannah Bananas.
Marlowe hit .309 in 44 games played for the Bananas this summer, collecting 51 hits in 165 at-bats. Marlowe led the Coastal Plain League in stolen bases with 37, and was fourth in the league in triples (3) and runs scored (40). His batting average was good for 16th in the league this summer, and he was joined as a First Team All-CPL outfielder with players from Division I schools Appalachian State, Rider, and Division II Columbus State.
The West Georgia center fielder was in the top-15 in the Coastal Plain league in 12 different offensive categories, including a seventh-place spot in RBI with 34. He was 10th in hits (51) and total bases (76), and was 11th in doubles with 10.
Marlowe and the rest of the West Georgia baseball team will work through the fall in preparations for the 2019 season, which will begin in early February.
