Travis Hitzeman returns to the Dallas Spirits following solid 2017 and 2018 seasons and with tenure from other top teams in NTABL play. Hitzeman has previous experience playing Independent League Baseball with both the Springfield Capitals and Tyler Roughnecks, where he played positions of third base and pitcher.
Hitzeman was voted as an All-Star in 2017, finishing with a .393 average and tied for second in extra base hits with 5 and second in RBIs with 16, while only playing in 10 of 18 games. During 2018, Travis hit for .385 with 10 hits, 2 doubles, a triple and a homerun. He scored 5 runs and batted in 6 in just 9 games played. Travis will return to the Spirits (35+) as a starter when available and will also serve as a part-time player with the Spirits (40+) squad in the DFWABA league.
At 6’4″, 230 pounds, Hitzeman is no joke when he puts together both speed and power when delivering from the mound or while batting. Originally from Dallas, TX, Hitzeman attended Missouri Valley College and has backgrounds in modeling and acting. If you don’t catch him in your weekly Kohl’s ads under the Big & Tall section, you can find Hitzeman at his full time position, where he’s currently employed at Ferguson Enterprises. Travis and his wife and two daugthers reside in Dallas, TX.
