EUGENE – The day is Sunday, May 5, 2024. Oregon baseball is hosting the Utah Utes, with Utah leading 1-0 in the bottom of the 2nd inning. Up steps Ducks freshman Maddox Molony, who watches the first ball go by. On the second pitch, Molony swings, cracking a ball deep over the left-field wall at PK Park.

“Yeah, I knew it was a home run. I kept running until it was over the fence anyway,” said Molony, whose 7th home run of the year broke the Oregon single-season freshman home run record.

“It was very cool. There was a lot of support from my teammates once I got in the dugout, lots of congrats and high fives,” Molony said during an interview in late May. “It was just a really, really cool experience for me.”

Molony, a Thurston High School graduate who helped the Colts win the 2023 state championship, just finished a record-breaking season for the Ducks.
