TEMPE, Ariz. - Sophomore catcher Petey Paramore has been named a College Baseball Foundation National Honor Roll Player of the Week. Paramore is the second Sun Devil to earn the honor this season, joining Matt Spencer, who earned the distinction on February 14.
The Allen, Texas native enjoyed hitting against the UAB Blazers, batting .600 (6-10) with seven runs scored in Arizona State's three-game sweep last weekend. Paramore totaled a .714 OBP on the weekend thanks to his four walks. He also added three RBI and a stolen base against the Blazers. A Freshman All-American last season, Paramore also flashed some leather at third base in the win on Sunday, playing the hot corner for the final two innings of the game. It marked the first time Paramore played somewhere other than catcher in his collegiate career.
Established as a 501(c)(3) charitable educational organization, the CBF hopes to not only catalog the sports' history within its' newly announced College Baseball Hall of Fame, but to provide an aggressive and enduring advocacy for the college game. It views its primary mission as fostering an appreciation of the historical development of college baseball and its impact on our culture, and increasing public awareness, exposure and generating additional opportunities for college baseball.
The Sun Devils travel to Tucson this afternoon for a non-conference battle with the Arizona Wildcats at 4 p.m. at Sancet Stadium. They head to Auburn, Alabama for a three-game series this weekend with Tigers, beginning Friday night.
