In baseball, no matter at what level, a .300 hitter is considered a good hitter.

If a player bats .400, he is a great hitter.

Adjectives cannot describe a .500 hitter.

No matter what words are used, nothing can match the figures Rogers County Ranger Curt Simpson is adding up this summer.

The cool Oologah product is hitting at a blazing .515 clip after the first 13 games. He is leading the Rangers in seven offensive categories, including an unbelievable .970 slugging percentage.

As the Rangers take a brief recess from play this weekend, it’s time to see how the new American Legion team is doing by checking the statistics, courtesy of Joe Edwards.

The Rangers, under coach Todd Bingham, stand at 8-5 and are carrying a .300 team batting average.

It hasn't mattered where Simpson is placed in the lineup. At shortstop, center field, or on the mound, the former Mustang is stockpiling numbers.

With seven doubles and two home runs mixed among 17 base hits, Simpson has added up 32 total bases while driving in 14 runs. Each is a team high.

A check down the roster finds that Matt Sparks, mainly a pitcher, has a .438 batting average. Hitting over .300 are Blake Kelly (.366), Tyler Harold (.364), and Justin Edwards (.356).

Edwards, the youngest player on the roster, leads the team with 45 official at-hats and has scored the most runs at 14. He will start his junior year next school term.

John Chassion knows how to get on base. He is tied with Simpson with 17 hits and leads with 11 bases on balls.

The Rangers, who were rained out in Joplin on Thursday, will be back in action Tuesday at Legion Field. Caney, Kansas, will be the opponent.
