Maurice earns regional honor
- Updated: March 19, 2021
DALLAS – Saint Anselm College junior first baseman Kyle Maurice (Exeter/Exeter HS) was named the East Region Player of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association on Thursday.
Maurice helped the Hawks to a 3-1 record through their first four games of the season, batting .462 with six hits, two doubles, two home runs and 11 runs batted in. Maurice helped the Hawks offense total 12 home runs in four games and his team-record 10 RBIs against American International in Sunday’s opening game fueled a team-record 23-0 victory.
Matching the NCAA Division II record with two grand slams in one game, Maurice also added a two-run double in the record-setting win. He also established a new team record with 10 runs batted in, breaking the previous top mark of nine RBI set by Eric Kraut against Assumption on Apr. 29, 1994.
Maurice is the first Saint Anselm player to be recognized by the NCBWA since pitcher JJ Dunn was honored on Feb. 21, 2018.
