Niners get baseball honors

The Charlotte 49ers continue to rack up conference awards in baseball as senior center fielder Brad McElroy was named Atlantic 10 player of the week and second baseman Corey Shaylor shared the league's rookie of the week award with Chris Pickering of Rhode Island.

McElroy had at least two hits in all three of Charlotte's wins over La Salle last weekend as the 49ers improved to 21-3, 6-0. Shaylor went 8-for-19 with seven RBIs over the past five games.

Charlotte also got added attention from several national polls on Monday. Collegiate Baseball News has the 49ers ranked No. 18, one shy of the school-record.

Perfect Game Crosschecker has Charlotte at No. 27; Rivals.com at No. 31 (by order of consideration); and the 49ers are receiving votes in the ESPN/USA Today and National Collegiate Baseball Writers of America polls.
