Titans Athlete of the Week
This week’s Titan athlete of the week is Nate Babb, pitcher, short stop for Tea Area. Babb, a junior, was nominated by the Tea Area High School Coaching Staff.
His coaches said, “At our regional playoff game on Tuesday, May 24 in Tea, Nate went two for three at the plate with two singles and was also hit by a pitch and scored a run.
Nate has been a leader for our baseball program in all facets that a coach and his teammates could ask for. Above and beyond the leadership for his teammates and the younger players within all three of our teams, Nate’s statistics have been impressive and consistent all season long. Nate hit safely in all games with the exception of one game, and in that game, he was walked twice. Nate ended the season leading our team in hitting with a .514 batting average. Nate also logged 20 innings on the mound as he was an effective pitcher all season long.
Nate shows up for games and practices with eagerness to get reps in to get better. He partnered with other teammates early this spring as the team helped with our 1st annual Tea Area High School Baseball Youth Camp. We look forward to having Nate be a leader in our program.”
