Bright spots for the Glen Oaks Community College baseball team have been few and far between this season. The Vikings are eight games below .500 (10-18) and 4-12 in the Michigan Community College Athletic season in head coach Scott Chase’s first year.
Glen Oaks has lost five straight since a pair of home wins over Ancilla on April 15. But what a day that was for freshman Mason Mitchell, an infielder from Edwardsburg and our Meyers Automotive Service Baseball Player of the Week for St. Joseph County.
Mitchell helped the Vikings beat Ancilla 13-0 and 6-5. He was a combined 7-for-14 at the plate and he hit his first college grand slam home run in his first at bat of the day. His final plate appearance in the nightcap resulted in a walk-off single.
