Josh Satin

JEWISH BASEBALL NEWS — Josh Satin of the “AA” Binghamton Mets (New York Mets) hit for the cycle Friday night (6/24/2011) in a 5-3 victory over the Bowie Baysox.

The 26-year-old University of California-Berkeley recruit, who splits his time between second base and third base, accomplished the rare feat in just four at-bats, starting with a 1st-inning HR followed by a double, single, and triple.

Triples come the hardest for Satin. “It’s a running joke with the guys in the dugout that I’m not the fleetest of foot,” he told “Once the ball came off the wall, I knew it was my chance. I just thought, ‘Oh, my God,’ and I kicked it into another gear that I didn’t know I had.”

A 6th-round pick in the 2008 amateur draft, Satin is proving a good investment for the Mets. The MVP of the 2010 “A” Florida State League All-Star Game, he is among the Eastern League leaders in multiple categories this season. Satin is ranked 2nd in doubles (21/tie) and OPS (.947); 3rd in on-base percentage (.414), slugging percentage (.533), and walks (42/tie); 4th in RBIs (46/tie); and 7th in batting average (.318) and HRs (9/tie).

Baysox DH Robbie Widlansky went 1/4 in the game.
