Buster Posey's Younger Sister Hits for Home Run Cycle

There's something in the water down in Leesburg, Georgia. Either that or greatness runs in the Posey family.

Buster Posey's younger sister Samantha, third baseman for the Valdosta State softball team, recently had a very impressive streak at the plate in a doubleheader with Albany State. She hit for a home run cycle, that is a solo, two run, three run, and grand slam homer over the two games which Valdosta State dominated 13-0 and 16-0. She blasted the solo shot and the two run homer in the first game, and the three run and salami in the second. What was even more impressive was the fact that each game only lasted four and a half innings with the mercy rule in effect, and she achieved this feat in limited at bats.

"You go in the [batter's] box and sometimes you're really comfortable. That's when I know I'm going to hit," Posey said, according to the report. "I felt really comfortable in the box."

Samantha is batting a team-high .468 with eight home runs with a crazy .909 slugging percentage. The Division II Valdosta State Blazers are 31-6 on the season and 16-5 in the Gulf South Conference.
