Penn State Baseball’s Matt Wood Named Big Ten Player Of The Week

Penn State catcher Matt Wood is this week’s Big Ten Player of the Week, the conference announced Wednesday.

This is the first time the junior has won the award during his collegiate career. Wood earned the honor after an impressive weekend against Maine down in Cary, North Carolina. He collected five hits with two RBIs and four runs scored to help the Nittany Lions go 2-1 over the weekend.

His best game over the weekend came during the finale on Saturday in which Wood had two hits and scored three runs. Wood is the first Penn State player to win the award since Greg Guers in April 2016.

So far this season, Wood has arguably been Penn State’s best player. Through seven games, Wood is batting .458 with a .917 slugging percentage¬†and .581 on-base percentage. Wood also leads the team with three home runs and nine RBIs.

The Nittany Lions will carry their 3-4 record down to Charlottesville this weekend to face Virginia in a three-game series. The first game is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Friday, March 4.
