BEREA, OHIO --  Baldwin Wallace University sophomore second baseman/ relief pitcher Mark Zimmerman (Akron/ Green) has been named as the Ohio Athletic Conference Baseball Hitter of the Week.  Zimmerman earned the honors for his efforts in BW's first four games of the season, including a doubleheader sweep last weekend of Transylvania (Ky.) University.

For the week, Zimmerman had 10 hits in 17 at-bats for a .588 batting average with three runs scored, three doubles, a triple, three runs batted-in and a stolen base. In addition, he pitched a scoreless inning with a strikeout in one of the victories at Transylvania.

A year ago, Zimmerman earned All-OAC honors as a freshman when he batted .324 (35-for-108) with 19 runs scored, eight doubles, one triple, one homer, 23 RBI and seven stolen bases in nine attempts. He had a .970 fielding average with just four errors in 135 total chances.
