UK Baseball: Bisson leads Cape Code League

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Kentucky sophomore second baseman Chris Bisson, a 2009 second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection, has swiped a league-leading 12 steals in just eight games while playing for Cotuit of the Cape Cod League.

In 2009, Bisson, hit a team-leading .360 average, pacing the club in at bats (222), runs (49), hits (80), triples (3), RBI (52) and walks (20), adding 13-of-15 stolen bases. The Orleans, Ontario, native, hit .365 (46-for-126) in SEC play alone, driving in 27 RBI while starting all 30 games at second base. The 5-foot-11, 185-pound left-handed hitter, led UK with 25 multi-hit games and 13 multi-RBI games, running up a team-high 15 game hitting streak.

Bisson, 19, played in 53 of UK's 54 games with 52 starts, reaching base safely in 50-of-53 games, going hitless only seven times all season. Arguably the highlight of the season for Bisson came in the bottom of the ninth inning of a rivalry game with Eastern Kentucky, when the sophomore erased a one-run deficit with a walk-off, two-run homer, Bisson's first career roundtripper.

While spending his first summer in the prestigious Cape Cod League, Bisson has played in eight games for Cotuit, stealing 12-of-14 bases, leading the CCL. Bisson hast hit .156 (5-for-32) with two RBI and four walks to just five strikeouts, playing three games at second, one game at third and six games at shortstop.
