KINGS POINT, N.Y. (March 6, 2018) – On Monday, the Skyline Conference announced that USMMA freshman Alex Mesaros (Pittsburgh, Pa.) was selected as the league's Rookie of the Week for baseball for the week ending March 4. The recognition comes after Mesaros' performance in the Mariners' season-opening doubleheader sweep over Rivier this past Sunday.
Mesaros had a great first day in his collegiate debut for the Mariners on Sunday. The rookie led all players in runs scored in both games, scoring four times in the opener and three more times in the second game. He also added an RBI on a sacrifice fly in the first game. The leadoff hitter boasted a 1.250 slugging percentage with one double and one triple and a .667 on-base percentage to go along with two stolen bases in the first game.
