CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Liberty junior outfielder Curran Redal (Moses Lake, Wash.) has been selected as the Big South Conference Choice Hotels Baseball Player of the Week, while Winthrop sophomore Dominic Patterozzi (Edwardsville, Ill.) has been named New Balance Pitcher of the Week for games played March 9-15, it was announced today by the League office.
Redal helped Liberty post a 3-1 record last week with a .500 batting average (5-10), .684 on-base percentage and a .900 slugging percentage. He scored five runs, knocked in seven, doubled, homered, walked six times and was 3-3 in stolen bases. He hit a home run and walked twice in Liberty’s victory over Duke, had two hits and two RBI in the Flames’ win over William & Mary, and collected two hits and three RBI in Liberty’s two games against Charleston Southern.
