Rock's Bell Earns Honor

Rock's Bell receives PSAC-West Player of the Week honor

LOCK HAVEN, Pa. – Slippery Rock University junior catcher/designated hitter Alex Bell was named Monday as the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference-Western Division baseball “Player of the Week” for the week ending March 16, 2014.

Bell batted .625 and had a .688 slugging percentage with 10 hits, including a double, in 16 at bats in four games played last week.

A Pittsburgh native and Upper St. Clair High School graduate, Bell also walked five times to record a .727 on base average, collected nine RBIs and scored seven runs.

Bell currently leads The Rock’s everyday players in hitting with a .442 average as well as in runs batted in with 20.

A first-year member of The Rock program after playing two seasons at Division I St. Bonaventure University, Bell is one of two SRU players who have hit a home run this spring and ranks fourth on the team in doubles with three.

Bell was the second Rock player to earn a PSAC-West Player of the Week honor this spring. Junior outfielder Adam Urbania earned the honor March 3.

The Rock take a 10-4 win-loss record into a pair of games scheduled for Tuesday at Jack Russell Memorial Stadium in Clearwater, Fla.
