Balting named to all-conference baseball team

Shelbyville’s Eadin Balting was named All-HHC for his performance this past season.


The All-Hoosier Heritage Conference baseball team was released Wednesday. 

Five different teams – including conference and sectional champion Greenfield-Central and regional champion Yorktown – have three members on the team.

All of the conference regular-season leaders were represented on the team – batting average leader Blake Wilson of Greenfield-Central (.453), home runs co-leaders Adam Hutchison of G-C and Keaton Mahan of Delta (3), RBI leader Mahan (27), runs leader Colby Jenkins of New Palestine (30) and stolen base king Nolan Bowser of Mt. Vernon (20). Pitching-wise, Pendleton Heights’ Walker Stull led in wins (6), strikeouts (72) and ERA (0.91).

Greenfield-Central’s Mark Vail was named Coach of the Year.

From Shelbyville, senior infielder Eadin Balting made the All-HHC team. He hit .417 this past season with 11 RBIs, 17 runs scored and three doubles. Balting also had a team-high 16 walks and added five stolen bases.

SHS and Yorktown both finished 3-11 in conference play. Greenfield-Central was first in the HHC with a 11-3 record. Pendleton Heights and New Palestine finished 9-5.
