Eagles set new fielding records in 2017
The Eagles have never played better defense than we played in 2017. The team set a fielding percentage mark of 95.1% (46 errors in 945 chances), shattering the previous record of 93.4%, which was set just last year, when we committed 75 errors in 1132 chances.
Colin Roberts also passed by the previous Catchers’ record of 3 runners picked off (set both by Evan Christopherson in 2014 and John Merkle in 2016), by picking off 4 runners this year.
In addition, the team turned 18 double plays, surpassing the previous record of 15 (achieved in both 2014 and 2016).
Nice glove work Eagles!
