Thornhill, Ontario — New Jersey Jackals IF/OF Conrad Gregor has been named the Can-Am League’s Batter of the Month for the month of August, as selected by PointStreak, the league’s official statistician.
Appearing in all 28 of the Jackals’ August games, Gregor hit .333 (30-for-90) with four home runs, 22 RBI, 20 stolen bases and a .512 on-base percentage as New Jersey went 15-13 and clinched third place in the league standings. He finished the month on a nine-game hitting streak, with multiple hits in seven of the nine games.
Currently second in the league with a .327 batting average, five triples and 49 stolen bases, Gregor broke the New Jersey franchise record for thefts in August, previously held by Chris Curran with 45 in 2013. The Carmel, Ind., native is also third in the Can-Am with 66 RBI and fourth with 104 hits on the season. He was named the league’s postseason all-star third baseman on Saturday.
The 27-year-old is in his third season in the Can-Am League, having also played with Rockland in 2018, where he was eighth in the league with a .300 batting average, and the Jackals in 2017. Gregor also spent six seasons in the Houston Astros and Boston Red Sox organizations, reaching as high as Double-A.
