SALISBURY, Md. – D3baseball.com named its first National Team of the Week this season on Tuesday, and junior Tyler Hrycak of the No. 6 Salisbury University baseball team earned a spot in the outfield for his strong start to the year.
Hrycak has been a key element to the Sea Gulls' 2-0 start this season. The Hockessin, Delaware native went 2-for-4 against Gwynedd Mercy University with a home run and two RBI, helping Salisbury win its first game of the year, 13-6.
In the first game of a doubleheader against Virginia Wesleyan College, Hrycak went 2-for-3 with a double, scoring a run and driving a run in. In the second game, which has yet to be finished, Hrycak blasted another homer to put his total at two on the year.
Hrycak has also been a force to be reckoned with in the outfield, recording five putouts in five total chances for a 1.000 fielding percentage.
Salisbury (2-0) was set to take on No. 5 State University of New York at Cortland in a two-game series at the SU Baseball Field on Saturday and Sunday, but the games were postponed due to inclement weather. SU will now look forward to Saturday, February 28 when they are set to take on State University of New York at New Paltz at the SU Baseball field. The first pitch is set for 12 p.m.
