Georgia Tech catcher Kevin Parada, has received the national player of the week honors after his elite week of baseball.
On February 28, it was announced that Georgia Tech Sophomore, Kevin Parada was named the national player of the week, and it was very much deserved. Parada is having one of the best starts to this college baseball season and is showing no signs of stopping any time soon.
This last week in baseball Parada numbers for Georgia Tech have just been absurd. In the five games that were played last week for Georgia Tech Parada had a, .571 batting average, four doubles, five home runs, and had a 1.476 SLG%, and .591 OBP. Parada was putting up video games numbers for the Yellow Jackets last week.
What is even more impressive about those stats is that he did all of that in 21-ABs. In those 21 ABs, he only struck out a total of two times and stole two bases for Georgia Tech. If Parada can continue his immense success I would fully expect him to win more player of the week awards and continue to see Georgia Tech winning games and climbing the national rankings.
As of now, the sophomore is picking up right where he left off. The day he won the award he had a season average of .485 with 16 hits. Now a couple of days after receiving the award he has raised his average to .514 with 19 hits, after going 3/4 against Georgia State.
The next game for Georgia Tech will be against the rival Georgia Bulldogs on March 4th, then after that Georgia Tech will hit the road and go over and play the Bulldogs on their home field.
As the season progresses it will be very interesting to see how Kevin Parada and Georgia Tech play throughout the season. Georgia will be a big test for Georgia Tech and now with the MLB announcing that regular-season games are getting canceled and will be delayed more eyes will be on the college world for baseball. So let us hope that the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets continue to win and be entertaining to watch the rest of this college season.
