Cowgill's HR pace is staggering

Posted: Updated:
YAKIMA, Wash. - Counting Friday night's loss at Everett, Bears OF Collin Cowgill has played in 17 games and already has 11 HRs--tops in the Northwest League. The next closest guy has three homers.  Cowgill hit the game-winning HR Thursday night at Everett. The fifth-round draft pick from Kentucky is on pace to post some staggering numbers if he can keep it up.
11 HR in 17 Games this season means he's on pace to hit 49 homers over the course of a 76-game season in the Northwest League.
If he kept this pace up over a 162-game season (length of a big league season) Cowgill would hit 105 homers. That's a lot of homers!
