Athlete of the week: Tanner O’Tremba
We usually try to separate athlete of the week and winning team of the week, but O’Tremba wouldn’t let that happen. After an impressive playoff performance last year, the junior picked up where he left off to open this season by combining to hit 7-14 to go along with two homers and seven RBIs over the weekend’s three games. end last. It was truly an impressive performance from O’Tremba.
The Arizona baseball team is back in action on Tuesday in the home opener at Hi Corbett where they will face the Grand Canyon with the first pitch scheduled for 6:00 p.m. MST.
