Baseball's Bob Rosinski Named MCC Player of the Week
April 16, 2001
Chicago, Ill. - For the second straight week, a University of Illinois at Chicago baseball player has been named the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Player of the week as senior infielder Bob Rosinski (Wilmette, Ill./New Trier) collected the honor earlier today. Sophomore designated hitter Chuck Peters (Orland Park, Ill./Sandburg) earned the recognition last week.
Rosinski, who helped UIC to a 4-2 record last week, led the Flames with a .524 batting average and a slugging percentage of .714 as a starter in five outings. He also topped the squad with four doubles, seven runs scored and seven RBI while striking out just twice in 21 at-bats. Over the weekend, in UIC's four-game conference set at Wright State, Rosinski compiled a .471 average at the plate with two doubles, four runs driven in and four runs scored.
A member of the 2000 All-MCC Second Team, Rosinski has put together a team-best .421 batting average this season and also leads the Flames with 53 hits and 33 RBI. Additionally, he is tops on the squad with 17 multiple-hit games and 10 multiple-RBI outings while also putting together the team's longest hitting streak of the season at 18 games.
UIC (18-20), which is in second place in the MCC with a 6-2 record, owns a 12-1 record at home and it will look to improve upon that on Wednesday, April 18, when it hosts the University of Illinois at 6:05 p.m. The Flames will then get back to MCC action over the weekend for a four-game series at Butler, starting Friday afternoon at 3:00 p.m. in Indianapolis, Ind.
