May 15, 2012|By Sandra McKee | The Baltimore Sun

Hereford shortstop Jay Patti has been named the Baltimore County Player of the Year by the county's baseball coaches.

"He's a hard worker and probably the most humble, skilled player we've ever had," Hereford coach Todd Hartshorn said. "He respects the game, the players on the field and he's easy to coach. If my daughter was 18, she'd be dating him."

Patti, a junior, batted .574 with 8 doubles, 3 triples 2 home runs and 22 RBIs. He also had 8 stolen bases, a .907 slugging percentage and an on-base percentage of .625.

Hereford finished its season with a 13-6 record.
