Local Roundup: Dartmouth’s Johnson Ivy Rookie of the Week

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Hanover — Trevor Johnson is off to a good start as far as following his father’s footsteps with Dartmouth College baseball is concerned.

Johnson, a freshman outfielder from Rye, N.Y., won the Ivy League’s rookie of the week award on Monday for his play in the Big Green’s four-game series split at The Citadel over the weekend. Johnson hit .500 in the series with a .667 on-base percentage and .750 slugging percentage in the set, which left Dartmouth at 6-4 on the young season.

Johnson’s father, Mark, was a two-sport star at Dartmouth, playing football and baseball for the Big Green. He later went on to play in the big leagues for the Pirates, Angels and Mets after his 1990 graduation.

The younger Johnson opened the Citadel set on Thursday with a home run on the game’s second pitch to set up a 3-for-4 day at the plate in a 7-2 win. Johnson added a single, walk and a stolen base in a reserve role on Saturday, then reached base five times on two singles and three walks in a 10-9 victory.

Dartmouth wraps its spring trip to Florida with six games this week, starting against the University of Chicago this afternoon.
