SHUPirates.com Athlete of the Week (May 1, 2012)
Scott Kalamar, Baseball
Kalamar started all five games for the Pirates last week, dazzling from the batter's box and flashing the leather as he helped SHU to a perfect 5-0 record. The junior earned BIG EAST and NJBCA Player of the Week honors after he erupted for one of the most productive offensive stretches in recent memory. Kalamar kicked the week off with a dominant 4-for-6, six RBI performance that included his first career home run, a grand slam, as SHU pounded Monmouth on the road, 15-3. A weekend series with the visiting West Virginia Mountaineers could not slow Kalamar down, as he recorded multiple hits in each game of a three-game sweep. Overall, Kalamar finished the week a staggering 11-for-22 (.500) at the plate with seven RBIs and five runs scored.
