The Elmira Pioneers might be as talented as any club in the PGCBL this season. Through ten games the club sits at 5-5, tied for first in the league’s West Division. Players have yet to really show who they are, but the early looks at Elmira first baseman Ryan Plantier are very promising.

Plantier blasted his first home run of the season on Wednesday night, and he’s starting to find himself at the plate.

His numbers early this season don’t immediately jump out at you; he’s hit a solid .263 through ten games. If you take a closer look, however, you’ll notice that Plantier has reached base at least once in every game this season, and is near the top of the league in walks, with nine. He’s displayed a patient approach at the plate, and it looks like his excellent batting practice power is starting to find its way into games.

“I think my walks are a result of choosing good pitches to swing at and having a better two-strike approach,” Plantier said.
