Baseball's Shaw Tabbed ACC Player of the Week
April 21, 2014
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Boston College sophomore Chris Shaw was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week for his performance against NC State and UMass-Lowell. The Eagles (14-26) went 3-1 on the week, led by Shaw's .556 batting average and five RBIs.
The right fielder also collected 15 total bases and a .833 slugging percentage. He led both the Eagles and the Wolfpack in the three-game series at NC State as BC took two-of-three to win their first ACC series of the season and the first conference road series since April 2011. His .571 batting clip, five RBIs and 13 total bases led both teams and his .929 slugging percentage was second among all players. He totaled eight total bases in Saturday's 7-5 victory over the Pack was the most on the season for the Eagles.
Shaw is the first Eagle to earn the conference's weekly accolades since infielder Anthony Melchionda (2009-12) earned the honor twice in 2012 (March 26, Feb. 20).
Shaw leads the Eagles in batting (.301), doubles (13), RBIs (22) and slugging percentage (.425) and he is currently on a six-game hit streak.
The Eagles return to action on Wednesday, April 23 for a 6 p.m. game against St. John's at Thomas Dodd Stadium in Norwich, Conn. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at the door or at www.cttigers.com.
