Feather River College freshman infielder Dylan Marx of Sitka.

The longer the season went, the more Feather River College freshman infielder Dylan Marx of Sitka kept getting on base and the higher he kept moving up in the lineup.

He started the season batting eighth. He climbed to fifth a month later and a month after that he was in the two hole. Marx spent the final eight games hitting leadoff as he continued to be an on-base magnet.

Whether it was by base knock, walk or hit by pitch, Marx managed to reach base in all 45 games this year in his first season for the Golden Eagles of the California Community College Athletic Association.

Marx batted .259 on 41-of-158 hitting and finished third on the team with a .458 on-base percentage, buoyed by a CCCAA-best 33 hit by pitch and at one point this season was plunked in eight straight games. That’s taking one for the team to another level.

The 6-foot, 170-pound right-handed hitter stands as close to the plate as possible, daring opposing pitchers to throw inside. They must paint the corner or run the risk of hitting him. It’s a brave approach and might sound easy in theory until you absorb a fastball in the ribs.

Marx, of Sitka High fame, reached base in his third of five at-bats in Saturday’s title game of the Super Regionals against Sacramento City after pulling a single to left field in the fourth inning of an 11-3 loss in Quincy.

Feather River, which features another Alaskan in redshirt freshman Carl Colavecchio out of Bartlett High, finished the season 35-10. Sac State advanced to the NorCal Regional final later this week.

Marx led Feather River with three triples and was second with 47 runs scored to go with 19 RBIs and seven doubles. His longest hitting streak was 10 games.
