Mustang Legend
Baseball
Evan McDole '05
Evan McDole has gone down in modern Mustang
baseball history as perhaps the most prolific
four-year varsity baseball player to ever wear
Mustang green.  From day one he was a major
contributor on the varsity level batting .370 in 113
trips to the plate as a freshman, tying a school
record with 13 doubles, hitting 2 home runs,
scoring 22 runs and knocking in 24.  For his efforts
he was named his team's Most Valuable Offensive
Player.

In his sophomore year he was recognized as one
of the top players in Northern Kentucky, being
named All-Conference and to the unclassified
Kentucky Post All-Star Team.  During that season
he led all of Northern Kentucky in extra base hits
with 21 while setting a school record with 16
doubles.  He hit a whopping .467 garnering 49 hits
in 105 at bats, knocking in 32 and scoring 24.  Again
he was named his team's Most Valuable Offensive
Player.
As a Junior Evan managed to improve his batting average to .489, going 45 of 92 at the plate while
swatting 12 home runs, narrowly missing Justin Seiter's season home run mark of 13.   
He added 12 more doubles to his career two-base
hit totals and knocked in 54 Mustangs while
scoring 40 times himself, tying a school record
that he shares with Ryan Studer and Justin
Seiter.  Now being recognized as a top hitting
threat by his peers, he drew 20 walks.  He led all
of Northern Kentucky in Home Runs,  RBIs, and
Runs Scored.  He also eclipsed the 1.000 slugging
percentage standard, recording a near-impossible
1.011.

Evan was named the PLAYER OF THE YEAR in
Division II by the Northern Kentucky Baseball Coaches
Association and the Northern Kentucky Athletic
Conference, honors that he would duplicate
during his senior season.  He again repeated as a
Kentucky Post All-Star, which is an unclassified
award limited to the top ten players in Campbell,
Kenton, and Boone Counties and was named to
both the Northern Kentucky Junior All-Star
Team and the 24 Player KENTUCKY STATE
Junior All-Star Team.  For the third consecutive
time he would be named his team's MVP.
Evan would cap off his brilliant baseball career at Brossart High School as a senior in 2005 by hitting
.483, going 43 of 89 despite being pitched around on 25 occasions when he drew bases on balls and
the four times that he was hit by a pitch.  Despite this, McDole managed 8 doubles, a triple, and five
home runs, knocking in 29 teammates, and scoring 32 runs.  His career batting average is an amazing
.451 which now stands as a school record as is his career doubles mark of 49, eclipsing the old
doubles standard of 26 by TWENTY-THREE.  His career total of 24 home runs ties the all-time Brossart
home run mark held by Justin Seiter and he holds the distinction of knocking in and scoring the
most runs of any Brossart Mustang who has preceded him.  To demonstrate his versatility he even
managed to steal 13 bases in four seasons.  He was again named Division II Player of the Year by both
the NKAC and the NKCA as well as 1st Team Kentucky Post All-Stars and was named to the Northern
Kentucky Senior All-Star Team.  He finished out his career by being named the Most Valuable Player of
his Mustang team for the fourth consecutive year.

In additon to being a standout athlete on the field Evan maintained a perfect attendance record
throughout his high school career and was a first honor
student and member of the National Honor Society.
During his career he played on one District Championship
Team, a District Runner-Up Squad, in Two Regional
Tournaments, on two 10th Region All "A" Classic
Championship Teams, and one 9th/10th Sectional All "A"
Championship Team.  He played at Applebee's Park in the All
"A" State Tournament on three occasions.
(Previous to 2004, the "A" State was unsanctioned)

On Monday, April 25th, 2005 among family, friends, and fans
Evan signed a four year, full-ride, scholarship to play his
college baseball at Northern Kentucky University.
