The workhorse of the 2018 Onondaga Flames, Bryan Hart has played in 32 of the Flames’ 35 games so far this season. He has the most plate appearances (137) and at bats (111) of any Flames player. The sturdy Bryant Bulldog seems to be getting stronger as the season progresses witnessed by his last 7 days slash line of .313/.389/.563.
Hart, a rising junior at Bryant University, packs a surprising amount of power in his 6’2″ 195 lbs. frame. Almost half of his 30 hits have been for extra bases – 9 doubles, 4 triples and 1 home run. (Bear in mind those triples might have been over the fence at other ballparks.) A power line drive hitter, Hart boasts a season slash line of .270/.394/.450 – impressive, especially for a middle infielder.
Talented with the glove, Bryan has played second, short, third, outfield and DH at D1 Bryant University of the highly competitive Northeast Conference. Hart’s big arm has allowed the Flames to use him at third as well as his more natural position at short and second. Bryan has been a big key to the Flames’ success this year.
The son of John and Janet Hart of Franklin, MA, Bryan has one brother, Neal, who played two years of baseball at Roger Williams.
