Gus Kleekamp-Washington Senior Legion Baseball

The KLPW Radio Athlete of the Week is Gus Kleekamp with the Washington Post 218 Senior American Legion Baseball Team.

Current batting average .409.  On base percentage .481.  Slugging percentage .530 with 14 rbi's and 28 runs scored.  Gus has two triples and four doubles.

He was 5 for 6 with two triples and six rbi's in a 27-1 victory over St. Peters last Thursday.  Against St. Charles the following night, he scored three runs and recorded the final out in a run down leading Washington to a 5-4 win. One of the runs came when Gus reached base after getting hit by a pitch. He stole second and the throw by the catcher bounced into centerfield.  Gus took off for third and scored when the defense was slow to get the ball back in. 

Gus has 20 stolen bases on the year and has been caught just twice. SB percentage .909.

Gus plays shortstop, but he can also pitch.  He's pitched four innings with five strike outs and one walk while giving up five runs on six hits.  Look for Manager Mike Gardner to use Gus more on the mound when the team gets into post-season action. 

At shortstop, Gus has 39 assists, 32 put outs, seven double plays and nine errors.  Impressive numbers for a player who fields most of the balls hit on the infield.
