College Spotlight: Rogers enjoys career year on the diamond at USC Aiken
It’s not even halfway through his senior season at USC Aiken, yet Chandler Rogers is already statistically far ahead of his junior pace in multiple categories. The Commerce Tigers 2015 grad is making sure that he leaves it all on the field in his final season.
In just 20 games so far in 2019, Rogers is batting .309 with 15 RBI to his credit. He also has scored 8 runs and notched 5 doubles, as well as recording a stolen base. The infielder is coming off a junior 2018 season that saw him put up solid numbers also: .275 average, 17 RBI, 29 runs, 2 doubles, and 7 stolen bases.
His current RBI total is two shy of his career mark at USC Aiken, and his five doubles has more than doubled his high of last season. All told, he has played in 68 games for the Pacers since coming over from South Georgia State, where he hit .330 as a sophomore back in 2017.
The former two-time All-Region member from Commerce was a member of the Tigers’ 2015 quarterfinals team, and helped Commerce to roughly 50 wins in his time there, including a pair of state playoff runs.
