PBR Alabama Staff

Mother Nature wreaked havoc on many high school baseball games across the state as most teams lost one or more games this week due to weather. Even so, there were plenty of outstanding performances across the state. Congratulations to the players below that have earned "PBR Alabama Players of the Week" for March 15-20. Thanks to the high school coaches that nominated players for this past week. This week we have 8 positional players, 6 pitcher only's and 6 two way players on the list. Let's see who those players are.

+ Max Soliz, Jr. (2021, C, Bob Jones) It's hard to believe Soliz put up all of these numbers in a single week but it's true. The Arkansas signee was 12-21 with 2 2Bs, 5 HRs and an amazing 20 RBIs. Soliz also scored 7 runs and walked 5 times.

Pitcher Only:

+ Thomas Ballard (2021, RHP, Bob Jones) Ballard continues to give the Patriots quality start after quality start. In the semifinals of the Gulf Coast Classic, the UAB signee twirled a complete game, getting the win against Lipscomb Academy. He allowed 1 earned run on 3 hits, while striking out 9 and not walking a hitter. 

+ Ben Capps (2022, RHP, Gordo) Capps tossed 12 innings on the week and did not allow a run. He only allowed 5 hits while striking out 10 hitters. He only issued 1 walk as he threw 5 innings against Bibb County and 2 more innings versus Winfield. 

+ Zach Hill (2022, RHP, Hueytown) The junior had a dominant performance against a quality opponent (Mortimer Jordan) this week. Hill tossed a 5 inning no-hitter with 6 Ks while only facing 1 hitter over the minimum (HBP) in a 10-0 victory. 

+ Mattox Johnson (2022, LHP, Gulf Shores) Johnson's line versus Foley is very impressive. The junior southpaw tossed a complete game 1-hitter (1-0) and did not allow a run and did not walk anyone. He recorded 9 Ks and only threw 68 pitches. He was in no 3 ball counts and only 1 2 ball count. 

+ Stephen Moraski (2021, RHP, Oak Mountain) The Kaskaskia JC (IL) signee continues to be just one of a few arms the Eagles can look to on the mound. Moraski greatly impressed in his start versus Prattville this week as threw a 6 inning no hitter with 13 Ks. 

+ Chip Morgan (2021, RHP, Andalusia) Morgan was dominant in his start versus Greenville as he recorded a complete game shutout. Andalusia won 3-0 while the senior right hander did not allow a run and struck out 10 hitters. 


Two Way Players:

+ Brodie Dodson (2022, RHP/INF, Faith Christian) Dodson was 5-8 with the bat in the shortened week with a 3B and 5 runs scored. He also drove in 2 runs. On the mound, he threw 5 innings while striking out 10 with no walks and only allowed 1 earned run. He was 1-0 on the mound for the week. 

+ Samuel Dutton (2021, RHP/OF, Westbrook Christian) Dutton consistently finds his name on the list, for good reason. The LSU signee (RHP) has been a mainstay in a 2 way role for Westbrook Christian.

With the bat, Dutton was 5-10 with 2 2Bs and 5 RBIs.

For the week, Hall hit at a .500 clip (4-8) with a 2B while getting on base at a .600 OBP. Hall, the Trojans closer, threw 1.2 innings this week and did not allow an earned run on the back end of games. 

+ Trent Hodgdon (2021, RHP/3B, Smiths Station) Hodgdon will be attending West Virginia University as a RHP but don't let that fool you as he can swing the bat as well. Offensively, the senior was 5-9 with 3 2Bs while drawing 2 BBs. On the mound he threw 6.1 innings and went 1-0 on the week. He only allowed 1 hit and no runs to go along with 10 Ks. 

+ Dalton Jackson (2025, RHP/3B, Florala) The first time we have ever had an 8th grader on the list but Jackson's numbers are more than deserving. In the only game Florala played this week he was 4-4 at the plate with 2 3Bs and 6 RBIs to go along with 2 SBs. If that wasn't enough, he went 5.2 innings on the mound and allowed only 2 hits and no earned runs. He struck out 8 hitters and walked 2.
