Sweetwater third baseman Mason Maxwell has been named to the Class 4A all-state baseball second team by the Collin Street Bakery/Texas Sports Writers Association.
Maxwell, a May 2018 graduate, was honored after his phenomenal senior year where he was the team’s leader in several hitting — and also pitching — categories. He led the Mustangs with a .488 batting average in 25 games during the regular season, and also was the leader or co-leader in hits (40), singles (25), doubles (9), triples (4), home runs (2), on-base percentage (.567), slugging percentage (.768) and OPS (1.335). As a starting pitcher, he was 6-1, leading the team in wins, strikeouts (52) and innings pitched (42) and was District 5-4A’s Player of the Year.
