April 24, 2001
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – University of Virginia baseball player Dan Street (Purcellville, Va./Loudoun Valley) was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Week. Street, a third-year right-handed pitcher/infielder, led Virginia to a 4-1 record last week and turned in an outstanding performance as a batter, infielder and a pitcher. For the week, he finished 13-22 at the plate (.591 batting average) with two home runs, one triple and one double. Street also recorded eight RBI, scored seven runs and stole three bases. Aside from putting up lofty numbers at the plate, he also pitched a complete game (9.0 innings) and allowed only one run (unearned) on three hits with three strikeouts in UVa’s 6-1 victory over Maryland (4/20).
For the season, Street is batting .379 after gathering 47 hits (seven home runs, six doubles, one triple) with 36 RBI and 28 runs scored. He currently owns a pitching record of 3-4 with an ERA of 2.32. Street has started 33 of the 34 games he has appeared in this season and has started eight games this year as a pitcher where he went the entire way in half of those contests after pitching four complete games. He has pitched 62 innings this year and is holding opposing batters to a .220 batting average.
Street’s honor marks the second time this season he was nominated by the ACC. He was also named the ACC Pitcher of the Week on February 19th. Street’s honor also marks the fifth time a Virginia player was named either the ACC Player or ACC Pitcher of the Week. Aside from Street’s two nominations, Brandon Creswell was twice named the ACC Pitcher of the Week (4/2 and 4/16) and Hunter Wyant was named ACC Co-Player of the Week on March 19th.
