The College Baseball Foundation has named App State’s Andrew Terrell the John Olerud Award Two-Way Player of the Week.
In four games last week, Terrell started once in left field, once on the mound and multiple times at designated hitter, batting from the leadoff spot even when he was the starting pitcher against North Carolina A&T. He has also started multiple games at third base this season.
Credited with the win on a “staff day” during the midweek victory against North Carolina A&T, Terrell struck out five of the seven batters he faced in two scoreless innings and then scored four times and stole two bases out of his leadoff spot.
A junior from Franklin, N.C., Terrell also had a double and scored a run in a 5-2 loss to No. 17 East Carolina on Saturday.
He is batting .275 this season with 11 hits and eight runs scored in 11 games (10 starts).
The John Olerud Award is named for the former Washington State standout who achieved success both as a first baseman and left-handed pitcher during the late 1980s and was inducted into the National College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007. He later became a standout for the Toronto Blue Jays.
