Led the team in hitting (.382), hits (29), RBI’s (24), runs (23), walks (21) and doubles (seven); stole nine bases

“Dylan’s been one of the hardest workers I have ever had. A lot of the stuff is behind the scenes. He gets the work done. He gets in the zone and really focuses. He’s always been the kind of guy where it’s never enough and he knew that he had to do more to get better,” Burbank coach Bob Hart said. “He’s the epitome of what we hope guys will do. Dylan made himself a ballplayer.”
