Grace Brethren School pitcher/first baseman Nick Schmidt has set a Ventura County baseball record for career doubles.
With three doubles in last week's Frontier League two-game series with Villanova Prep, Schmidt increased his career total to 40, passing the record of 38 held by Brandon Mascorro of St. Bonaventure High from 2000-02.
Schmidt's last nine hits over the last four games (9 of 17) have gone for doubles.
He leads Ventura County hitters for the second straight season with 16 doubles. He had 15 in 2008.
Schmidt has a chance to distance himself in that statistical category.
He's only a junior.
