The 2011 college baseball season starts today, with top draft prospect Anthony Rendon playing at 5:30 PM EST against Stanford in the first game of a three game series this weekend. Check out the 2011 Pittsburgh Pirates Draft Prospects Preview for more information about Rendon and the other potential draft targets that will be starting off the 2011 season this weekend.
Last year Rendon hit 26 home runs in 226 at-bats. That was an average of a home run every 8.69 at-bats. He hit multiple home runs in the same game on four different occasions. Rice opened the season against Stanford last year, and Rendon hit one homer in the three game series (drawing four walks in the third game of the series).
With those numbers in mind, how many home runs do you predict Rendon will have this weekend?[polldaddy poll=”4573328″] Pirates Prospects is FREE today in honor of the Wild Card game.
