Tide land transfer catcher from Ole Miss

Tide land transfer catcher from Ole Miss

The Alabama baseball program received a commitment from Ole Miss transfer Will Plattner on Friday.

Plattner spent one season at Ole Miss. He made two starts as a catcher and played in seven games in total. The Illinois native amassed a .300 batting average and compiled a 1.000 fielding percentage behind the plate.

The best game that Plattner had as a freshman came against Alcorn State on April 12. He went 3-for-3 at the plate with a double, four runs scored, and a walk.

In 2023, Alabama rotated at the catcher position. Mac Guscette and Dominic Tamez both started a handful of games behind the plate. In 2024, I would expect Plattner to be in the mix to play a lot at catcher. With Guscette returning, he will likely begin the season as the Crimson Tide’s backup catcher.
