Maryland baseball sophomore infielder Matt Shaw and freshman infielder Ian Petrutz collected Big Ten honors, the conference announced on Wednesday.
Sophomore infielder Matt Shaw was named the conference’s Player of the Week after an incredible weekend series against Michigan. Shaw smashed six homers, recorded seven hits and drove in 13 RBIs in Maryland’s series against the Wolverines. His special weekend included a three-homer showing in the Terps’ 20-6 victory on May 14.
The honor was Shaw’s second career Big Ten Player of the Week recognition.
Petrutz was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Week. Petrutz batted an incredible .471 with six runs, eight RBIs, two doubles, and two home runs in Maryland’s games against Michigan and James Madison. This was Petrutz’s first Big Ten Freshman of the Week award.
Both players have been instrumental in leading Maryland to one of its best seasons in program history.
