OPRF High School graduate Joe Gerace is tearing it up for the Cornell College baseball team.
Gerace, who graduated from OPRF in 2010 and started at centerfield for the Huskies, recently went 10-of-22 and scored a team-best nine runs in a tournament in a season-opening tournament in Florida.
In his team’s 20-9 rout of Pittsburgh-Greensburg for the finale, the lead-off hitting sophomore scattered four hits in six at bats, scored five times and drove in two runs.
Cornell College is located in Mount Vernon, Iowa.
