State Tournamanet Spotlight: 1B Daniel Heleine



By Greg Williams
WV Director of Scouting

HelieneDaniel Heliene is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound unsigned senior that has put up eye popping numbers this spring. He has broken school single-season records for home runs (16) and RBI (57) this season and potentially has two more games to add to those totals.

Heliene will lead Hedgesville into the state tournament this week with an eye on a 3A state title and also showcasing his talent on the big stage. In regional final action Thursday night, Heleine staked Hedgesville to a 1-0 lead in the first inning when he clubbed his 16th home run of the season. His offense factored into the scoring again in the 3rd inning when Hampshire elected to walk him with two outs, placing runners at first and third. Both runners scored on a double to push the Hedgesville lead to 3-1.
