UT Baseball Ties, Sets Records during Seventeen-Run, Eight-HBP Inning

Here’s a baseball happening you’ve never heard of before.  Eight batters were hit by a pitch and seventeen runs accumulated during a single inning Saturday.  These record-setting events occurred during the seventh inning of game one of a double header between Eckerd College and the University of Tampa.  The HBPs set an NCAA record (across all divisions) for the most during a single inning and the seventeen runs scored in one inning tied a UT record.  One batter, Stephen Dezzi, was hit by a pitch during two different plate appearances in the inning that saw seven pinch hitters used.

From the UT baseball website (formatting by the BBB):
