OSUís Fish Named NCBWA Hitter of the Week
March 20, 2013

Oklahoma State’s Zach Fish has been named the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association’s National Hitter of the Week for games played from March 11-17.

Fish is the first league player to garner a national weekly honor this season.

Fish helped OSU to a perfect 5-0 week as he led an offense that produced 54 runs in its five outings. The sophomore slugger turned in a .600 batting average (12-for-20) with a team-leading eight RBI, and he hit safely in all five games to extend a season-long hitting streak to 13 games. The Cowboys’ right fielder had multiple hits in four of the five games, including tying a career high with three hits in three of those contests, and also had three two-RBI games.

He was 7-for-11 (.636) with runners in scoring position. In his five-game tear, Fish tallied 20 total bases and turned in a 1.000 slugging percentage. He had at least one extra-base hit in four of the five games and finished with five doubles and a home run. Fish also led OSU with three stolen bases on three attempts and scored a team-high eight runs.

The NCBWA Board reviews candidates from each Division I Conference each week and names winners each Tuesday throughout the season.
