TEMPE, Ariz. - Sophomore shortstop Andrew Romine has been named a College Baseball Foundation National Honor Roll Player of the Week, the Foundation announced today.
Romine returned to the Sun Devil lineup this weekend after suffering a blood clot last summer and going through rib removal surgery in January. He made his presence felt immediately, as he went 7-12 in the four games ASU played, knocking in seven runs including the game winner on Saturday night against Washington State. Romine hit a double and a triple over the weekend, and also flashed his leather in the field. Despite not having played baseball since the College World Series last June, Romine made several spectacular plays at short, including a diving stop and throw in the bottom of the ninth on Saturday to preserve the Devils 2-1 win over the Cougars.
