He did it in an age appropriate league, to clarify BaseClogger's point he did it in Greeneville (rookie ball) and not Dayton. 104 wRC+ is pretty average. All in all, it certainly wasn't a "very good" season, it definitely was not poor either. The fact he played SS gives him some added intrigue. Seems like mediocre (of moderate quality) is an accurate assessment.
