Chattanooga State Baseball Names Applebee's Players Of The Week

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

The Chattanooga State Baseball team has named their first Applebee’s Players of the Week for the week of Jan. 26 through Feb. 2. Sophomore LHP Tyler Troutt won the first game of the season 5-1 with a masterful complete game against the #18 ranked Georgia Perimeter baseball team. Tyler allowed four hits and struck out four while walking only one.  

Head Coach Greg Dennis had this to say about the MTSU-signee, “Tyler was superb in his first outing and we have been blessed to come to expect these types of outings from him in his time here.  He is a special young man on and off of the field and we look forward to even bigger and better things from him in the future.”  

Sophomore Shortstop Tyler Hendley was also named Applebee’s POW for his work last week as he went 5-9 overall with a double, triple and a whopping six RBI’s for the 4-game series.  Tyler is a transfer from JUCO power Temple College in Temple Texas and has stepped in well at SS following All Conference players Dylan Coleman and Jordan McDonald from the past four years.  

Coach Dennis had this to say about the Durant, Oklahoma native, “Tyler has done great so far and to see him step in and start the season off that way was a huge lift.  He drove in all five runs in Tyler Troutt’s win and we are hoping he stays hot at the plate and in the field all spring.”
