It’s no doubt that Indy baseball has had a lot of success so far this season. Their overall record is 14-3, the best start in many years here at Independence.

This success is in part by a freshman, Robert Hassell III. Hassell is an outfielder and power hitter.

Hassell “brings a new attitude to the team,” as he puts it. “I bring a kind  of intensity to the team that I haven’t seen in the years that I’ve been watching baseball here.”

The 6’2″ Tennessee commit hit a home run his first high school at bat, which just goes to show that he definitely brings intensity. He says he’s played baseball since he was about three years old. “When I was five, I can remember thinking to myself ‘I’m going to be great,'” Hassell said of himself.

He also played basketball until his eighth grade year, but he knew “baseball was the sport” for him.

Hassell has two home runs this season, and will continue to be a star on the baseball field for his next three years here at Indy.
