Athlete of the Week: Hogan Windish

Pinehurst native Hogan Windish is the Athlete of the Week.

Windish currently plays for the Double-A Arkansas Travelers in the Texas League. He is a member of the Seattle Mariners organization after being drafted in the seventh round in 2022.

Windish, who played for Ashe County High and UNC Greensboro, hit 22 home runs last year in Class A, earning him a promotion for this season.

He had a history-making game last Tuesday when he hit four home runs and drove in all of his team’s runs in a 9-4 win over Springfield. Only one other player in baseball history — in the major or minor leagues — has ever driven in all nine of his team’s runs in a game. That was former Red Sox all-star Mike Greenwell in 1996. It was also the second four-homer game in team history and first since 1998. It was the first four-homer game in all of the minor leagues in more than two years.
