De La Salle proudly announces that Ben Hernandez ’20 has been chosen a member of the 2020 National High School Baseball Coaches Association’s Region 4 All-American Team.
Hernandez was drafted by the Kansas City Royals in the second round (41st overall) of the Major League Baseball Draft this June.
While the Meteors did not play last spring because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hernandez was a key contributor in De La Salle finishing with an overall record of 22-7 in 2019 as the Meteors won the Illinois High School Association Class 3A De La Salle Regional as well as the IHSA Class 3A Brooks College Prep Sectional before their season concluded at the IHSA Class 3A Crestwood Supersectional.
Congratulations, Ben, and continued success with the Royals! Everyone at De La Salle is very proud of you!
