The 49ers grabbed more hits and doubles than in 2013 and the team won 37 games, the sixth time in the past eight seasons that the program collected 35 or more wins.

Robinson remains the only player in Charlotte 49er history to reach 100 RBI in a season, which he did in 1998, a season in which Charlotte was selected to participate in the NCAA Tournament as an at-large entry (only 48 teams played in the postseason in those years). He also hit a school-record 32 doubles of his record 106 hits that year, and he owns the career marks for doubles (82), RBI (230) and total bases (499). The 49ers retied his number-four jersey on May 12, 2013.
