D1Baseball/AstroTurf Player Of The Week: Louisville’s Alex BinelasTop Stories
Louisville once again appears to be the class of the Atlantic Coast Conference early the season, and it might be on the way to more success with All-American Alex Binelas finally starting to heat up.
For his production for the Cardinals over the past week, the hard-hitting U of L slugger is our latest D1Baseball/AstroTurf National Player of the Week.
Binelas, a 6-foot-3, 225-pounder, has had a fruitful career with the Cardinals, but admittedly got off to a pretty slow start at the plate. With that said, his fortunes have suddenly changed over the past week. He was terrific in three games for the Cardinals last week, going 7-for-10 (.700) with two home runs and two triples to help lead Louisville to a 2-1 weekly record and a road series split against red-hot Notre Dame.
Binelas being back on track is bad news for future ACC opponents, and his surge comes at precisely the right time for Dan McDonnell’s club.
