Former ECC infielder/pitcher Jesse Zellner, who now plays at Central Methodist (Mo.), was named the Heart of America Athletic Conference Baseball Player of the Week, the league office announced.
A native of Tonawanda, N.Y., Zellner helped Central Methodist to a 2-2 record in conference play last week after splits with Benedictine (Kan.) and MidAmerica Nazarene (Kan.). In four games, Zellner batted .667 with one home run, a double, eight hits, eight RBI and three runs scored as Central Methodist retained its first-place standing in the HAAC's Eastern Division.
Zellner is the second former ECC player to be named HAAC Player of the Week this month as Mike Wagner was honored March 5.
