Alfonso & Teasley Claim NCBWA Weekly Region Awards
Both of this week's SSC Baseball Players of the Week also added regional accolades to their resume, as Alex Alfonso and Rick Teasley received NCBWA region weekly honors.
A monster weekend at the plate landed Florida Tech infielder Alfonso National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) South Region Hitter of the Week. The award followed his first SSC Player of the Week accolade, which he earned Monday.
Alfonso batted .615 (8-for-13) with two doubles, six RBIs, three walks and seven runs scored in a three-game series sweep of Tuskegee last weekend. He led the Panthers in slugging percentage (.796) and on-base percentage (.688), while roping multiple hits in all three games and scoring multiple runs in two.
He has played in seven of the Panthers’ 11 games and currently holds a .444 batting average.
Saint Leo’s Teasley was selected NCBWA South Region Pitcher of the Week.
Teasley tossed a gem in the Lions’ 6-1 victory at Eckerd. Working all nine innings, he surrendered one earned run on six hits with no walks. He struck out nine Triton batters.
