Collegiate Baseball names Black National Player of the Week
BETHLEHEM, PA. – Lehigh Baseball Junior’s right-handed Mason Black, Mason Black, did exactly the way he wanted the 2021 season to go, as his tremendous performance earned him Collegiate Baseball National Player of the Week on Monday morning.
Black is the second Lehigh player to be named National Player of the Week for the past three seasons after Tony Gallo won the award in 2019.
Saturday’s outing at Coppin State made a statement for Black as he completed five strong innings without allowing a hit or run, defeating eleven of the 16 Batters he faced, taking the win 9-0, one hit about the eagles.
Black’s eleven strikes are a career high, crushing his previous nine, which he has staked three times in a row during the 2020 campaign.
In addition to receiving the Junior Collegiate Baseball award, Schwarz was also named one of four nominees for the D1Baseball Golden Spikes Award of the Week. Fan voting began today on Twitter to determine the winner for the week. To vote, click Here.
