MINNEAPOLIS – Gallaudet University junior infielder Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) was selected to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week on
Tuesday after his impressive weekend leading the Bison to a 3-1 record in
conference play on the road. Upton was selected as this week’s top second
baseman.

Upton posted a .889 batting average as he went 16-for-18 in four
conference road games last weekend to conclude the 2018 season. The junior
infielder hit for the cycle in his final game of the season against SUNY
Cobleskill. He went 6-for-7 against the Fighting Tigers in a 23-14
victory. He finished the week with 12 RBI, 10 runs, six extra-base hits
(three doubles, two triples, one home run), 26 total bases and two stolen
bases. Upton posted an eye-popping 1.444 slugging percentage and an
outstanding .850 on-base percentage.

Upton becomes the fourth NEAC player to be named to the D3baseball.com
Team of the Week this season. This is the 13th and final week for the
national team of the week.

The Team of the Week is D3baseball.com’s weekly honor roll, in its seventh
season, of recognizing the top performers at each position including four
pitchers and one reliever from the previous week. Players are selected
from nominations from their school’s sports information directors.

GU HONORS
This marks the second time a Gallaudet baseball student-athlete has been
selected to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week since it began in 2012. In
2013, William Bissell was selected to the team in Week 6. This is Upton’s
first selection to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week.

note:
Cameron, since he came on board as a freshman, has been the team’s
number one player.

Take a look at his improving batting averages:
freshman   .345
sophomore  .356
junior     .426

primarily a shortstop, he has played other positions – second base, outfield, and pitcher

he has one more season of eligibility and lets’ hope he will make it
the greatest ever

member of national baseball team of Greece

Yesterday’s DeafDigest Sports said that Dmitri Kourtis,
a deaf relief pitcher with the independent Lincoln Salt Dogs
team, is now a free agent.

It was learned that Dmitri was a member of the national
baseball team of Greece during the 2016 season.

He was not born in Greece, but being of Greek ancestry,
he was eligible to play despite being born in USA.

He is not the first deaf to play on a national baseball
team. Tyson Gillies played for the Canadian national
baseball team. He is no longer playing ball.
