TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State's DJ Stewart added two national weekly awards to his resume as he was named a Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper and then National Hitter of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).
Stewart had an outstanding four-game span, hitting .600 (9-for-15) with nine RBIs and nine runs scored with five doubles. The freshman left fielder recorded at least one hit in all four games while posting multiple hits and multiple RBI in three of FSU's four games.
The Yulee, Fla., native opened the week with five hits in nine at-bats as he drove in six and scored four times in helping FSU complete a four-game season sweep of Stetson. He followed with four hits in six at-bats in the first two games at NC State. In game two, Stewart helped the Seminoles rebound from a game one loss as he went 3-for-3 and reached base on all six plate appearances. Stewart recorded two doubles and a single, while driving in three and scoring three times. His three walks tied a career-high.
Stewart, who was also named ACC Player of the Week for the second time this year, is tied for the team lead in hitting posting a .328 average on the year.
