In the final inning of the regular season, Myles Christian hit his 18th homer in Forest City, setting a single-season record in the CPL.
3 games were cancelled due to rain in the final week, and despite having already tied Jason Dubois at 17 home runs for the most in CPL history, it was going to be down to the wire with just a double header against the Owls remaining in the season. Christian already recorded 4 hits on the day, but it wasn't until the final inning of the second game he sent the record-breaker over the center field wall at McNair Field.
Christian also racked up 6 homers in exhibition matches, one in the CPL All-Star game, and added another in the division playoff game against Forest City in a 16-0 victory. So while only the 18 in CPL season play count, Christian has bashed 26 in a HiTom uniform, and still has time for more.
Austin Pharr deserves honorable mention, who also surpassed the former HPT home run record, and also finds himself among the top in CPL history at 15.
The HiToms hit a league-leading 56 homers, 16 more than the 2nd place Owls.
Christian and Pharr combined for more long-balls than all but 3 other entire teams.
