Eberle Begins Season As NWL Hitter Of The Week

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Former Notre Dame and Jacksonville State infielder Sam Eberle has been named the first Northwest League Hitter of the Week for the 2013 season.  He batted .343 for Salem-Keizer, scoring eight runs and putting five walks alongside his 12 hits in his team's first 10 games.

Eberle played in 36 games for the Volcanoes last summer, batting .248 with four extra-base hits (all doubles). The Jacksonville State product has already surpassed that campaign in several categories after the first week of play this season. After going 0-for-7 in his first two games, Eberle cracked his first pro home run on June 16 and added seven doubles and his first career triple over the next seven games. The 23-year-old infielder also stole his first base as Salem-Keizer jumped out to an early lead in the league's South Division.
