Gallaudet’s Cameron Upton named NCBWA Division III National Hitter of the Week

DALLAS – The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA)
released its weekly NCAA Division III National Players of the Week awards
for May 9 and Gallaudet University junior infielder Cameron Upton
(Vicksburg, Miss.) was selected as National Hitter of the Week for the
first time in his career.

Upton is the second Gallaudet batter to earn NCBWA National Hitter of the
Week honors in program history as he joins Casey Hicks (April 10, 2014).
GU has had one NCBWA Division III National Pitcher of the Week in Danny
O’Donnell on March 27, 2014.

This is Upton’s fourth award this week after he claimed NEAC Baseball
Player of the Week on Monday, named to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week
on Tuesday and named to the All-NEAC First Team on Wednesday.

Upton posted a .889 batting average as he went 16-for-18 in four
conference road games last weekend as GU posted a 3-1 record 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.

Arizona Cardinals

it was announced yesterday that Arizona Cardinals signed
Derrick Coleman to a one year contract.

Coleman is not the first deaf player that Cardinals
signed.

It was Bonnie Sloan, who played a year with the Cardinals
in 1973 while the team was located in St Louis.

Do note that St Louis Cardinals was not the same team
as St Louis Rams (which moved back to Los Angeles.

The signing of Derrick was interesting because Bruce
Arians, the head coach, does not like to use fullbacks
in his offensive system. And the team just released
a running back to make room for Derrick on the roster.
