Incoming Youngstown State freshman baseball player Josh Hoffman has had a strong summer in preparation for his first college season.

He has some hardware to prove it.

The shortstop hit .414 with 16 runs, 13 RBIs and 15 stolen bases — in 17 games — for the Astro Falcons, who won the league title.

The Astro Falcons finished first in the nine-team league with a record 0f 23-2-2, 6 1/2 games ahead of Creekside Fitness.
