John Hefner makes his debut in his first full season with the Spirits (40+) squad. Hefner’s initial debut was with the Spirits fall squad during 2018. Hefner quickly made an impact, finishing fourth on the team in hitting while compiling a batting average of .524.
John finished the fall season with a team-leading 11 hits, adding 3 runs scored and 6 runs batted in.
Hefner provides the team with depth at the catching position and can be relied upon to call a solid game for his pitchers and to act as a vacuum behind the dish, absorbing any balls or miscues that attempt to make their way past him. He has a solid arm and can be counted upon to gun runners down at second when needed.
