Will Robertson key to Creighton’s success

Will Robertson

Will Robertson is unlike most hitters over the last eight seasons at Creighton.

Since 2012, the Bluejays have played on a full-time basis at TD Ameritrade Park, one of the hardest venues to hit home runs at in college baseball. It’s caused the Bluejays to have few power hitters in their lineup.

As a team, Creighton hit nine home runs in 2015. That number surged to 37 last season with Robertson responsible for a bulk of the home runs. He led the Bluejays with 12 homers last season, which was the most by a Creighton player since 2012. 

He’s duplicated that success this spring, as his compact left-handed swing has allowed him to drive the ball into the gaps and over the fence.

Robinson’s home run totals are just a glimpse of his success at the plate throughout his three-year college career. He has enhanced his skills and developed into a MLB draft prospect at Creighton. He likely will be a top-five round selection in this year’s draft, which begins June 3.
