LaValley cashing in on opportunities at the Double-A level

Gavin LaValley didn’t need much time to make his presence felt at the Double-A level.

He joined a select group of players in his debut with the Pensacola Blue Wahoos in mid-June, becoming just the fifth player in franchise history to hit a home run in his initial appearance with the team.

Sure, there have been some hitless nights since his promotion from High-A Daytona Beach, but LaValley is still no doubt one of the more productive players on the team.

In a game against Mobile last week, LaValley came through with his first multi-hit night in the month of August as he helped the Blue Wahoos rally for a wild 9-7 victory over the BayBears.

The 22-year-old first baseman finished with two hits, including a two-run double in the first that gave Pensacola an early 2-0 lead.

He pushed his season total to 113 that night, with 45 of those hits coming as a member of the Blue Wahoos.
