Ridgefield had no shortage of bats in its lineup, as shown by its league-best .295 team batting average, though Sharp had a knack for sparking the Raptors at timely moments.
Sharp provided several signature moments in a June 28 win over the Portland Pickles by hitting a pair of home runs and scoring the game-winning run on a wild pitch for a walk-off, 8-7 win.
He also hit three home runs in a three-game series sweep of the Bellingham Bells July 12-14 to kick off the second half of the season.
The hitters-friendly confines of the RORC were favorable to Sharp as well. He hit all but one of his home runs at the ballpark. The 14 homers established a new Raptors team record and was also one shy of the WCL record set by Bellingham’s Chase Illig in 2017.
“Coming from California, I got to say I love hitting in Washington,” Sharp told The Columbian in a June 28 interview. “I love hitting in Ridgefield, that’s the main thing.”
