Senior outfielder Sean Butler (Dickson City, Pa./Scranton High School) had a big weekend at the plate as The University of Scranton baseball team opened 4-0. His performance was one of the best in the nation as he was named to the D3baseball.com Team of the Week for the period ending Sunday, March 4.
Butler went 7-for-16 (.438) in the four games, driving in 11 runs, scoring six and stealing a pair of bases. He hit three home runs in a doubleheader sweep of Arcadia on Sunday at Diamond Nation in Flemington, N.J. He homered twice in an 11-0 win in the opener, then hit a walk-off grand slam in the bottom of the ninth inning of the second game to give the Royals a 7-3 victory.
The Royals are back in action on Friday, March 9, when they face Kenyon College at 3 p.m. in Fort Myers, Fla.
