Mizell leads Tigers to three wins in Tennessee

Coleman Mizell, an Alabama signee, has been on a record-breaking tear for the Hartselle Tigers over the last two weeks. He has hit 11 home runs and 29 RBI while going 23-of-44. He has helped lead the Tigers to seven wins in their previous ten games, including three of four in Tennessee and two over Sparkman.

“Coleman is a special hitter, and the things he is doing at the plate is special but not surprising to us,” Hartselle coach Jake Miles said. “He is in a good zone right now and is a big piece to our lineup. He and the other guys in the lineup continue to grind and compete for every at-bat.”
