Apparently, it is, since it ranks just second all-time in Georgia high school history. That hitting is pretty unbelievable. Yes, yes, the pitching could be spotty, but it is very difficult to hit .654 in whiffle ball, let alone against high school pitchers.

I think I hit better than .654 in wiffle ball when I was a kid, but then again there were usually only the pitcher and 1 other fielder so hits were pretty easy to come by.
