Former L.D. Bell High School baseball star Zack Plunkett wrapped up his redshirt senior season at Arkansas last month.
Plunkett, a catcher from Hurst, finished his second season with the Razorbacks, who earned a trip to the College World Series, by hitting .260 in 26 games including 16 starts, according to the team’s website. He also had two home runs, five doubles, 12 runs, nine RBIs, a .480 slugging percentage and a .451 on-base percentage.
In his high school days, Plunkett was named by Perfect Game as one of the top 500 players in the country, and also was the district’s defensive most valuable player as a senior. His other honors at L.D. Bell include receiving all-area recognition as a senior and placement on the Star-Telegram’s Baseball Super Team.
Plunkett began his college career with two seasons at TCU before transferring to Arkansas. He played in 39 games there and recorded a .167 batting average.
